Sponsorship Opportunities

Dear Partners,

We, as Partners, can change lives and we can eliminate systematic oppression!  We can create change and we can collaborate in a way that the community we all serve can live in a world of opportunities. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once stated:

“Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'.

We know you care and we know that you stand with us during a time when collaboration truly matters.  We invite you to become a sponsor for the 29th NBDA National Conference, which will be held on July 31, 2019 - August 4, 2019 at Oakland Marriott City Center Hotel.  There are various sponsorship levels to meet your individual and/or organizations’ capacity.  Every dollar matters so we thank you for your giving!

The conference also coincides with the Collegiate Black Deaf Student Leadership Institute and Youth Empowerment Summit (Y.E.S!) as the nation’s only summer leadership camp for Deaf African American youths.

The conference offers multiple sponsorship options that yield two important outcomes—marketing and promoting programs or services for your organization and providing tangible support for the conference programs. We anticipate a diverse group of Deaf, hard-of-hearing, hearing, educators, parents, activists, senior citizens, CODAs, high school and college students, service providers, interpreters, allies and other interested individuals. Your support will help defray conference costs and made NBDA a better conference experience for all attendees. See Programs & Items Sponsorship for a list of programs/items sponsorship.
