Sponsor Mystery Code Society
While our curriculum is designed challenge the minds of our students, there are some puzzles we don’t want them to have to solve. One of our core values has always been accessibility, and some of the barriers to getting into code have nothing to do with the code itself: lack of access to technology, transportation, or even an empty stomach can stand between a potential coder and their ambition to learn. We do not charge our students any kind of tuition, so it is only through the support of our generous sponsors that we are able to continue with our vision.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org about these sponsorship opportunities.
Your support will feed our students pizza for 6-12 weeks of class.
While pizza may seem like a perk, providing lunch helps students focus, and keeps us accessible for students who might not otherwise be able to take the class.
Host our students in your space and on your wifi for 6-12 weeks of class.
(Monetary or donation of space) A regular home base that’s accessible to our students (with reliable wifi!) takes a lot of the guesswork out for our organizers (and the parents of our students!)
Snacks, decorations and awards for our Graduation Celebrations, one of the most rewarding days of class for students, their families, and our volunteers.
Light snacks are provided every week.
Sometimes fruit snacks are just the break you need to fix that bug.
All sponsors are featured on our website, as well as getting frequent shout outs from the Mystery Code Society social media, and an invitation to our Graduation Celebrations. Full Course Sponsors and Cornerstone Sponsors (Technology, Location, and Pizza Sponsors) get individual posts thanking them on our MCS facebook. Mystery Code Society is a registered 501(c)(3) and donations are tax deductible. Any sponsor donating over $250 will receive official documentation of the donation in their thank you letter.
Excited by our mission, but not sure how you can help us grow? Please contact us at email@example.com and one of our board members will contact you to discuss how we can work together to close the equity gap in tech.
We could not done what we have done without the generosity of our sponsors, and we will not be able to achieve all we want to achieve without partnering with more sponsors in the future. And we do feel our sponsors are partners with us in this mission. Sponsors visit our classes, come to our graduations, connect us with community leaders who connect us with more students.
Our Location Sponsor:
Milton R. Abrahams Library
Since the beginning we have partnered with this branch of the Omaha Public Library on 90th and Fort Street. They have donated not just the space where we hold their class, but the support of their incredible staff, Chrome Books for the students to learn on, and a platform to find new students who may not have heard of us any other way.
Our Pizza Sponsor:
Dynamo is an Omaha based IT consulting and recruiting firm, and since the very first class they have provided lunch for all our students and teaching assistants. While pizza may seem like a perk, providing lunch helps students focus, and keeps us accessible for students who might not otherwise be able to take the class.
Our Technology Sponsor:
AIM/Interface Web School
AIM is an innovative not-for-profit community organization that grows, connects and inspires the community through technology; and sadly, access to technology is one of the biggest barriers between students and code. AIM has generously donated laptops, set up with the programs needed to teach the students languages and frameworks we never had the technological oomph to tackle before.
