CLASS SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
JDCF is always looking for CLASS SPONSORS.
If you or your business would like more information on HOW TO SPONSOR one of our classes, you can contact us at 217-473-1303.
For a set "fee", you can sponsor a class and provide TEN students in our community a free entrance to that class; that they may not have been able to afford to attend otherwise.
Sponsored students will be chosen by teachers at the area schools. We will rotate schools, and age groups, and make sure it is not the same students chosen each time. We want to give many students a chance to find their creative side.
