Corporate Sponsors

Thank you for your interest in sponsoring the 2017 Because of Hope (BOH) Runner Team for the Santa Barbara Veteran’s Half Marathon!

Who We Are

Because of Hope (BOH) is a Santa Barbara based 501(c)3 nonprofit whose mission is to sustainably empower widows and orphans living in Uganda. BOH is active in 3 rural Ugandan villages, offering empowerment opportunities to 83 widows and their orphaned children through income earning opportunities, education, and agriculture training.

What We’re Asking

Each year, BOH gathers a team of runners for the Santa Barbara Veteran’s Half Marathon. Each runner commits to raising $1,000 for BOH’s programs making this a pivotal fundraising event for our organization. This year, our goal is not only for these runners to raise a total of $15,000, but for local businesses to match (or exceed) that goal with another collective $15,000!

Your Funding Impact

Because education is not free in Uganda, we offer student scholarships to these women’s children and currently support 34 students in their education endeavors. As students age, however, their school fees also increase. Thus, school fees are the largest funding need for our organization. We project that the funds YOU give will go to furthering these students in their education and ultimately breaking them and their families out of the cycle of poverty.

Will you contribute to our $15,000 sponsorship goal to sustainably break these women and children out of poverty?

We hope you will join us in our mission to empower these women and children. Sponsorship levels and forms are included on the following pages of this document. We can’t wait to partner with you!
