The Brain Injury Association of Waterloo-Wellington is a registered non-profit charitable organization.
We are the only program in our area for acquired brain injury survivors.
It is our hope that working together with our community partners we can educate the public on prevention of acquired brain injuries and to continue to build on the resources and programs for those who sustain ABI, and for their caregivers.
There are many ways for your corporation or business to support the Brain Injury Association of Waterloo-Wellington. It may be through Major Sponsorship or sponsorship of an event either monetary, in-kind or attending an event.
Please email our Executive Director to arrange for an appointment to discuss our programs and the opportunities further.
The BIAWW has a long history of serving the needs of those with ABI in the Waterloo and Wellington regions. Since 2000, the organization has run numerous programs to serve the needs of survivors and care givers. The past two years have been especially difficult for the BIAWW and we have now initiated a "re-start" phase and we're excited to regain our position in the community.
The Board and ED are focused on generating sufficient funding ($30k) before the end of 2017 to make the decision to expand the resourcing and programming into 2018. While this is a short period of time, the board is hopeful that by reaching out to previous sponsors along with some new opportunities, the organization can once again provide much-needed support to individuals and their families who are dealing with ABI’s in the Waterloo and Wellington regions.
The main challenge for 2017 is to secure operational funding. This will allow us to confidently move into the next phase of our plan.
For 2018, in addition to general sponsorship, we are in the preliminary stages of discussing a number of programs, fundraising events and activities that will all need corporate sponsorship. These may include expanding survivor and support peer-to-peer groups to rural areas, education and awareness programs, bursary programs and fundraising events.
We anticipate the following sponsorship and event levels:
Platinum $25,000 $10,000
Gold $15,000 $5,000
Silver $10,000 $2,500
Bronze $ 5,000 $1,250
Based on the level of support, the sponsor logo and link will continue to be prominent on the home page and supporters page of our website. We will also include you on our “corporate directory” which will be made available to the public on our website where we are currently averaging over 400 unique views per week. When we complete our “restart” phase, we expect that to significantly rise. We would also include your logo on newsletters once restarted.
We would also make available to you and your staff, access to our events and visibility at any information sessions we would provide.
