There are many ways for your organisation to support The Big Hope 2. Examples include:

Financial Donations - These will help us to offer scholarship opportunities, such as heavily reduced rates or fully paid tickets, to young people who may otherwise be unable to attend. We firmly believe that financial hardship should not prevent young people from participating and your support will help them overcome this. 

Service Donations - Organising the logistics for a global conference of this scale is no mean feat! Young delegates from around the world will need transport, catering and other items. Your organisation can help by offering hire services at a reduced rate.

Time Donations - We want to make the programme as stimulating and enriching as possible. Does your organisation have specialists in their fields who would be happy to lead a parallel discussion session or learning track? If so, let us know (we can cover reasonable expenses).


Benefits of getting involved

Benefits to your organisation of supporting The Big Hope 2 include:

Corporate Responsibility and staff enrichment - Give your organisation and staff the opportunity to have a positive
impact on the development of young people locally and from around the world.

Raising the profile of your business - Your brand will be exposed to thousands of people in the build up, during and
after the congress. Delegates of today – leaders and decision makers of tomorrow!
