Sponsorship

sponsors celebrating

The disABILITY Resource Expo relies on support from business and community sponsors to lead the way in creating the most recognized resource expo in East Central Illinois. Through your support:

  1. The Expo will offer Champaign County and East Central Illinois residents the opportunity to learn more about available resources in our area.
  2. The Expo will link individuals with disabilities and their families to the community resources that will enable them to live more independently.
  3. The Expo will help educate all citizens about disabilities and how, together, we can make a difference!
  4. The Expo will offer materials available in alternative formats, such as large print, disk, braille, etc.
  5. The Expo has become recognized as a critical area resource event.

Six sponsorship levels are offered and can be monetary or in-kind support. To discuss the possibility of becoming a sponsor, please contact event coordinators Barb Bressner (bjbressner@gmail.com) or Dylan Boot (wheelzothunder@gmail.com). Supporters must pledge their sponsorship by the annually posted due dates to receive full acknowledgement. For example, the 2020 Expo due date for all advertising copy is February 21, 2020.
