Support Our Mission

Become a Sponsor

We would not be able to continue our mission of supporting abused, neglected and at-risk youth without the generosity of all of our sponsors. By joining our efforts, sponsors can make a major impact all over the country by embracing and backing our various endeavors throughout the National Courage House Network and enhancing the lives of thousands of children in need?

As an added benefit, sponsors are rewarded with tickets to the exclusive Ed Block Celebration and VIP Sponsor Brunch as well as spending time with the Courage Award recipients and meeting them on a personal level, while being included in our year-round advertising promotions and digital content.
