BIST relies almost entirely on private donations and sponsorships to provide our programs and services, such as:
- our monthly social drop-in and community meetings
- FREE workshops on topics related to brain injury for ABI survivors, families and professionals
- FREE community outings and social events for ABI survivors
- our peer support program (in partnership with OBIA)
- support groups
CURRENT SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITY:
For the last few years, BIST has been a readily available support for me. Brain injury has life long effects, which need continual support. BIST staff and members have been instrumental in my continuance to manage myself and build on trust and coping mechanisms for everyday life. – CG
BIST promotes sponsorship opportunities as they arise and will ensure these opportunities are transparent and are made equally available to all interested supporters. Sponsorship opportunities will be limited to events and publications.
Our mission is our key priority, and we strive to deliver value to our members while remaining objective about their interests. It is important for BIST to avoid all real and perceived conflicts of interest and therefore our sponsorship policies reflect our need to remain independent and free from influence.
In addition to the annual sponsorships, BIST will continue to offer individual sponsorship opportunities for certain events that it offers throughout the year.
We look forward to working with you!
