WHAT IS SPONSOR A SCHOOL (SAS)?
Sponsor A School by IPaintMyMind is a selective enrollment corporate charitable giving opportunity for companies operating in Chicago to support Shared Walls, a comprehensive art program IPaintMyMind provides to local public schools. By mobilizing your company's charitable budgets, fundraising & volunteering, your company can ensure that local public schools have arts programming they'd otherwise go without.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
If accepted, your company will put forward a 1-3 person team to coordinate your Sponsor A School Fundraising and Volunteer commitment. You will select a baseline fundraising commitment level below, which your company will be expected to raise by the end of your campaign. IPMM Team Members will work closely with your team to plan your Sponsor A School Campaign, ensuring that your company and its employees can raise as much for your partner school as possible!
WHAT IS THE IDEAL COMPANY FOR SPONSOR A SCHOOL?
A company that cares deeply about kids and underserved communities, understands the grave problem of severe underfunding in our public schools, and cares about creating a better world.
Your company is a fit for this opportunity if you:
- want to connect and positively impact Chicago's youth and underserved communities
- are looking for a fun and easy charitable giving & volunteering program
- are creative, altruistic, or kind
- know how much help public schools need
- have an internal team/committee that can spearhead fundraising and volunteer efforts
Watch the brief video below to hear about our vision for a future where every kid in Chicago has access to the engaging, empowering, technicolor process of being inspired and activated by art!
Sincerely, Evan La Ruffa
Founder & Executive Director
