The budget for the National Gathering of Elders is well in excess of $2 Million dollars. The elder registration fees cover 50% of the cost with the balance of the funds coming from our sustaining and local sponsor partners. With the large number of delegates that will attend the gathering, cost for the event facilities are substantial.
We are looking to our corporate partners to come with us on our journey as Sponsor Partners to cover some of the costs for the gathering. The elders have nothing to offer our cherished sponsor partners except their heartfelt appreciation and gratitude, an invitation to sit at the table and share a meal together, a time to listen to each other tell stories in order to gain a better understanding of who we all are and how we can work together for all our futures.
