Corporate Sponsorship

APPLICATION FOR CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Corporate Sponsor. The New Jersey Association of Independent Schools invites companies and/or organizations that provide products or services to independent schools to become an NJAIS Corporate Sponsor. NJAIS is a nonprofit, service organization, a 501(c)3 entity, whose mission is to promote educational, ethical, and professional excellence through its school accreditation program, to offer intellectually stimulating professional development opportunities to educators in its schools, and to generally promote and safeguard the interests of independent schools in New Jersey.

Corporate Sponsorship will help your company or organization gain extensive visibility and contact with the NJAIS membership of 81 schools. While Corporate Sponsorship is not an endorsement, it does provide sponsors with enhanced visibility and exposure within the Association, as well as offer the member schools useful resources that will assist them in providing services to their students and families. Your sponsorship will help underwrite NJAIS programs, by making them more affordable to a wider body of faculty members and administrators.

Once your application has been received and approved, your company representative will be notified of acceptance and will be sent an invoice. Corporate Sponsorship with NJAIS begins at $2,000 and benefits commence upon receipt of payment. Sponsorship runs annually from July 1 to June 30.

Corporate Sponsors are not endorsed by NJAIS which reserves the right to revoke sponsorship status at any time that the Executive Director determines the sponsor's business purposes and functions to be inconsistent with the core values of NJAIS.

For more information, and questions, please contact:

Amy Mai Tierney, Corporate Liaison at 201.654.6541 or atierney@njais.org
