Bridging business with education
School Sponsors invest in their community and their future by linking arms with a local BIP school so that they can empower students and support teachers.
$2,500 goes a long way
What your sponsorship provides
School sponsors offset the program costs of a BIP school while forging long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with teachers and students.
For just $2,500, a School Sponsor provides:
- $1,000 matching scholarship funds for that school
- Mentors during the program
- A judge for the school’s presentation night
- A presence in the classroom(s) through speaking
- Possible real-world opportunities such as company tours
What you receive
Opportunities to give back
Employees are looking for opportunities to give back. Supporting a school gives multiple opportunities through mentoring, judging, speaking, attending project events and rallying support around their presentation night.
BIP Business Advisory Board position
The Business Advisory Board is for businesses who are invested in education through in-class work with students and teachers. They inform Big Idea Project’s activities and strategy so that students, teachers, schools, businesses and communities thrive.
Promotion at the school
School sponsors’ logos are displayed in BIP classrooms for students to see. You also receive recognition at the school’s community presentation with a logo on slides, shout-out from the emcee and the chance to present the scholarship.

Big Idea Project features all school sponsor’s on our website, in press releases (when able) and on social media. We allow sponsoring business the use of BIP’s logo and trademark too.
Access to promote brand to alumni
