Become a Conference and Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC Sponsor

43 conferences were held between May 1994 and May 2015.  Your help is needed for this to
continue in the future.

Add your support. All sponsor donations are tax deductible with Becoming We the People, a 501-c-3 partner (FEIN: 26-3921550), acting as fiscal agent for the conference. Your tax deductible donations help to build the capacity and quality of tutor/mentor programs in Chicago, Northwest Indiana and throughout the country.  All levels of sponsorship enable you to tell more people about your products and services.

When you donate as a sponsor you are helping more tutors, mentors, and program staff to attend the conferences. While the normal fee is $80, we offer $30 scholarships to organizations that may not be able to afford the full fee for the conference.  We also offer discounts to groups of three or more and all workshop presenters receive full scholarships. Your sponsor donations help us do this, enabling start up organizations and those with minimum budgets to take part in the conferences.

If you would like to do a custom donation or become the official sponsor of the conference (have it named after you or your company), please contact us and we would be happy to discuss it with you. Of course, any level of sponsorship or donation helps us build a better conference.
