We are pleased to announce our new Forum Partners Program based upon input from our sponsors, Board, and partners. As friends of the Forum know, we convene education stakeholders many times a year for a variety of events, including the Color of Education Summit and Eggs & Issues Breakfast.  We rely on sponsorship dollars to help pay for these events and other work of the Forum. In an effort to ask our friends less frequently for their support and to better offer the full range of recognition opportunities the Forum offers, we are moving from an event-specific sponsorship model to the Forum Partners Program.

This model will allow organizations to tailor their recognition for their specific needs and includes many potential recognition opportunities, including our events, our publications, our TV show Education Matters, and more. Our Forum Partners Program is an opportunity to share your organization’s brand with thousands across North Carolina.  More importantly, it’s a way to share your commitment to the idea that each child should have the opportunity to reach their full potential through equitable and meaningful public education, and that educating our children well nourishes our state’s civic and economic vitality.

Your Forum Partnership is valid for one calendar year from date of returned signed Partner agreement. Jay Robinson Education Leadership Gala recognition is NOT included in the Forum Partners Program for 2021. We are assessing the best way and time to host the event, and separate sponsorships may be made available for the Gala.

For more information, to discuss recognition preferences and to commit to being a Forum Partner, please contact Director of Development Marisa Bryant at 919-781-6833 ext. 100 or mbryant@ncforum.org.
