Sponsorship Letter


May 4, 2017


Dear Potential Sponsor:

On the weekends of September 30 – October 1, 2017, and March 3-4, 2018, a select group of outstanding educators from New Jersey and Pennsylvania will participate in a two-day forum called Elevating and Celebrating Effective Teachers and Teaching (ECET2NJPA).  This forum is centered around the belief that teachers hold the key to ensuring educational policy is well-informed, instructional shifts are made with fidelity, and educators are equipped with the right professional development to be effective in the classroom. The best way to elevate teachers and the entire teaching profession is to recognize that teachers are the experts in this field.

The two-day convening of ECET2NJPA is entirely organized by New Jersey and Pennsylvania educators. We will inform and inspire our colleagues, develop their leadership potential, and support them in honing their craft. In the spirit of bringing Pennsylvania and New Jersey educators together to collaborate and learn, we have developed forum goals and content, identified speakers, managed venue selection, and are promoting the event.

We need your help to make this happen for the third year in a row!  ECET2NJPA is partially sponsored by a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation; however, in order to continue  the success of the convening, we need additional support.  We are looking for sponsorship from individuals, educational institutions, companies, and corporations that mirror our educational passion and interests to generate funding for speakers, to house participants overnight in a hotel and supplement the cost of meals.  We are asking for your support in the form of a donation or other resources. Your patronage is greatly appreciated and will show our attendees your appreciation for teachers and the teaching profession.

Yours in education,

Barry Saide
