We hope that businesses and organizations that share our vision and want to benefit the BAM community broadly will come alongside as Sponsors. Sponsorship is a great way to support business as mission globally, while raising the profile of your own company or agency among a BAM-focused audience.
What are the benefits of Sponsorship?
Raise your profile at the BAM Global Congress 2020 by becoming a Sponsor of this unique global event. We are expecting over 1000+ people engaged and interested in business as mission to attend.
In addition to being a featured Sponsor at the Congress, you will get pre- and post-event exposure through the BAM Global and Business as Mission websites and The BAM Review mailing. You will be able to share your brand with a unique BAM audience through social media, web presence and emails. We communicate hundreds of thousands of times each year with our mailing list, followers and site visitors.
A breakdown of Sponsor benefits per level are given in the table below:

How do I get up to 18 months for the price of 12 months?
Generally, BAM Sponsorships last for one year. However, due to the special nature of the BAM Global Congress in 2020, we guarantee that your Sponsorship will extend through to the end of 2020, or for one year after your Sponsorship begins, whichever comes later.
That means if you start to Sponsor in July 2019, you will get 18 months for the price of 12! If you start your Sponsorship in April 2020 just before the Congress begins, your Sponsorship post-event will extend until April 2021.
Why are Sponsors shown on two websites?
The Sponsorship package encompasses both the BAM Global website and this Business as Mission website.
By becoming a Sponsor you are enabling and supporting the work of BAM Global. This work includes a strategic partnership with the BAM Resource Team to run the Business as Mission website.
The BAM website and blog are designed to be ‘a one stop shop’ for BAM resources for the BAM community, by the BAM community, and as such promotes many organizations, viewpoints and initiatives. BAM Global also has its own website to enable us to share more about its work in particular. Sponsors will therefore be visible on both websites.
Do Sponsors get special mentions in Blogs, The BAM Review or social media?
Yes. As part of their benefits package Sponsors will get special mentions in Blogs, The BAM Review emails and on our BAM social media feeds (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram), according to their Sponsorship level. For the sake of transparency, we will always make it clear when we share Sponsored content.
Do Sponsors get special mentions in your Resource Library?
No. The Resource Library is designed to be a comprehensive directory of any and all books, articles, courses, organizations etc. that may be useful to the BAM community. Sponsors may be listed in the Resource Library, however they do not receive special treatment. If you are not in the Resource Library already, you may fill in the form on any Resource page to request that your material or organization is listed, whether you are a Sponsor or not.
Note: we do not usually add individual companies to the Resource Library unless they offer a service or resource that is of broad interest to the BAM community. Please contact us to find out more.
Do I have to give the exact amount of Sponsorship?
No! For all the Sponsorship levels we give a minimum recommended amount, feel free to give more as you feel led:
Silver – $500++
Gold – $1000++
Platinum – $4000++
Diamond – $8000++
How do Sponsorship monies get used?
BAM Global operates as a very lean network and 100% of Sponsorship money goes directly to the operations and initiatives that serve the BAM community globally. These include: convening Regional and Global events, advocating for BAM internationally, producing the BAM Resource website and The BAM Review mailing, facilitating ‘Think Tank’ working groups, conducting unique research and gathering an unprecedented collection of intellectual capital from the current generation of practitioners.
In 2019 and 2020 most of the Sponsorship monies will go directly to enable the BAM Global Congress to take place. A percentage of the Sponsorship will be placed in a scholarship fund to assist those who would otherwise be unable to attend this landmark event. This is directly related to our BAM Global Value to be truly global in our representation in the BAM movement.
Can I get tax benefits on my Sponsorship gift?
Yes. Tax-deductible donations can be routed to BAM Global through a 501c3 in the USA to provide tax benefits to the donor. Similar arrangements are available for funds donated in a few other countries. Please enquire for more details.
Can I pay in instalments?
For Sponsorship at the Silver or Gold levels, we ask generally ask for a lump sum to reduce administration, but if this is prohibitive, please let us know.
For Sponsorship at the Platinum or Diamond levels we can arrange for payment in instalments or as a lump sum.
Please mention on your application form if you are interested in paying in instalments.
What if I just want to donate?
We very much welcome donations if you wish to support the work of BAM Global and the Business as Mission website with a more flexible amount or don’t wish to be visible as a Sponsor.
