In order to run a successful and purposeful event, we are seeking to solicit local businesses and community members to sponsor flying in a keynote speaker, providing meals at the symposium, and any other costs we may incur. We will require dinner on April 21st, and breakfast and lunch on April 22nd. We have set up a fund with the Paso del Norte Foundation, who will be serving as a fiscal agent on our behalf.


We are asking for the following levels of sponsorship:

Platinum                    $1,500-$2,500

Gold                           $1,000-$1,499

Silver                          $500-$999

We anticipate our total costs to be approximately $15,000 for the entire event, with $6,500 for the dinner, $4,000 for breakfast and lunch, $3,500 for miscellaneous expenses (paper and other materials, decorations, etc.) and $1,000 for flying in a keynote speaker.

Donations by credit card can be accepted online at, a donation page run by the Paso Del Norte Foundation. Checks can be made out to WE(fillintheblank) and mailed to 4935 Meadowlark Dr, El Paso, Texas 79922.
