Event Sponsorship

BAWSI has multiple events through the course of the year through which your organization can participate, sponsor, and “do well by doing good.”


BAWSI Annual Spring Gala

BAWSI’s largest annual event offers multiple levels of sponsorship. Hosted on the first Friday every May, our event features celebrity athletes and inspires community involvement through storytelling from the people closest to our programs. 

BAWSI Girls Game Day

All of our BAWSI Girls participants are invited to a BAWSI Game Day where they attend a local college women’s sporting event. These events are often the girls’ first exposure to a college environment, helping to broaden the girls’ sense of opportunities for their own future, including the possibility of attending college. 

Individual Fundraising

Excited to support BAWSI’s work in the community and want to get more people involved? There are so many fun and social ways to rally your friends for a great cause:


Crowdfund Your Next Race or Athletic Challenge

What better way to rise to the challenge than by sweating on someone else’s behalf?! Whether it’s a marathon, a triathlon, an open water swim or a Tough Mudder, you’ve set a goal for yourself and your friends want to cheer you on too. Chances are they can’t be there with you at the finish line, but they can show their support by donating to your favorite charity (BAWSI of course.)

Host a BAWSI House Party

If you want to help spread the word about BAWSI and get your own network of friends involved, hosting a house party is the way to go. In the comfort of your own home, and according to your own schedule, you can entertain your friends informally, while they learn more about BAWSI’s programs, history and future.
