MISI Sponsorship Opportunities

MISI continues to create some of the most exciting events and programs in Maryland. We would like to increase the number of events and the quality of the events. Please review the sponsorship opportunities and let us know how you can help. You can always donate to our General Activities Fund or a Specific Program Fund like IMAGINE.

MISI Partnership Network

Joining the network is free and only requires you to register here. The benefits of joining are that you get weekly emails on our opportunities, ongoing projects, events, and personnel needs. We do look for MISI Partnership Network sponsors to help us cover the costs of tools and labor to share this information. The benefits include recognition on MISI website as a MISI Partnership Network sponsor, invites to MISI Partnership Quarterly Information Sharing Event to get information first-hand from one our Directors, and invites to MISI's First Annual Mission Accelerator Conference in 2020.
