The Shoulders of Giants has been a nonprofit leader in advanced technical education since 2013 with the vision of sharing the thrill of scientific discovery with as many students as possible. Getting students excited about science and engineering benefits us all. Elevating our education systems and equipping future generations with technical skills and knowledge to innovate and thrive in a global economy is the best investment the business community can make.
We are actively seeking corporate sponsorship for projects, student challenges, and upcoming events. All proceeds support the nonprofit mission and are considered 501(c)(3) tax-deductible donations.
All sponsors will have their logo displayed in our live stream credits, on the home page of this website, and on select additional promotional materials (such as T-shirts) for 12 months following the date of sponsorship. Beginning in Q1 2020, new sponsors will also receive a special "Sponsor" Discord role for one company / organization representative to enable a direct line of communication to TSoG's leadership.
In addition to these benefits which apply to all sponsors, additional benefits may apply to specific sponsorship types, as described below:
General Program Sponsorship
Open to both for-profit and non-profit partners, this is our most flexible sponsorship option in both benefits and budget. Depending on sponsorship amount, sponsors may elect to directly sponsor a student challenge, a course, or a video series.
Sponsor development of a new educational tool on Work in Progress or a similar TSoG.tv series. Sponsors receive special credit at the beginning of each episode and their name on the open source (CC BY-SA 4.0) repository. Nonprofit discounts available.
Sponsor an in-person event, such as a summer program, outreach activity, or conference. Sponsorship tiers and benefits vary by event type and scale. Inquire about our upcoming opportunities or propose your own. Events make great volunteerism opportunities as well!
Approved restaurants / caterers may elect to sponsor food for an event or donate gift cards that can be distributed among students, volunteers, or Patrons. Our lowest-cost sponsorship option but carries many of the same benefits as general program sponsorship.
It is our top priority to make sure that any and all contributions to our organized are utilized as effectively and efficiently as possible. Please let us know a bit more about yourself, your company, and your sponsorship interests by filling out the form below to help us get started. A TSoG representative will follow up with you to discuss the next steps on your way to becoming a sponsor of The Shoulders of Giants.
