Partners & Sponsors

CSEI partners host a design thinking challenge team and make a financial donation to the Powell Economic Education Foundation in support of the students and supplies that craft solutions for their organizations.

Sponsors are invited to make a financial donation in support of those partner organizations – some of which are nonprofit organizations.

Available levels of sponsorship include $2,000 to sponsor a student team and $4,000 Design Challenge sponsorship. Sponsors receive recognition in newsletters, on the CSEI website, and in press for supporting the Institute and its mission. All sponsors are invited to attend Design Challenge presentations.

For information about sponsorship, email Trina Clemans

“The team developed a strategy for our B Corp outreach, which is a crucial element of my work at Impact Makers. Their research and recommendations lay the foundation for what we are starting to implement. They saved me two months of work and brought a unique perspective to the project that was incredibly valuable.”
