Sponsors

We invite everyone to join us in making a positive difference for children by sponsoring our 25th Annual Conference. Our theme this coming year is “Enhancing Our Minds in 2017”  with an added focus on “wellness” and will be held June 21-25, 2017, in Kissimmee, Florida.

Our goal is to be able to continue to offer a variety of high quality speakers and to increase the number of scholarships so that more providers will have the opportunity to be renewed and inspired. They will gain knowledge and enthusiasm to continue to “nurture a love of learning” with the young children in their care.

We need your support in making this high quality event a great success!  In keeping with our conference theme, we would appreciate your “enhancement” by selecting one of the Sponsorship Levels:

  • Curious Minds: $250
  • Creative Minds: $500
  • Caring Minds: $1,000
  • Inquisitive Minds: $1,500
  • Innovative Minds: $2,500
  • The Ultimate Mind: $5,000 or more
  • MIND MATCH funds raised by parents up to $_______

We look forward to working together on “Enhancing Minds in 2017.”
