Sponsorship Levels and Hierarchy
We have established a hierarchy of sponsorship levels, all of which include services and value-added incentives that are proportionate to the dollar amount donated. In all cases, the donor will receive recognition in all program materials and on the website. Your contribution is an inexpensive way of maximizing local exposure for your organization with the participants on both sides of the Atlantic, with the participants and their parents, as well as in any exchange program publicity. We sincerely hope you choose to participate and we are ready to answer any questions you may have.
