    Event Sponsorships

    Welcome to the Event Sponsorships department at Morehouse College, where we collaborate with alumni, corporations, and other supporters to raise essential funds for various purposes, including scholarships, the athletics department, student programming, and more.

    About Event Sponsorships

    Our primary objective is to secure financial support through event sponsorships, enabling the college to continue its mission of academic excellence and student success.

    Throughout the year, Morehouse College hosts a significant number of events, each serving as a platform for engagement, networking, and fundraising. While all events are vital, we particularly seek support for our annual signature events, which play a crucial role in the college's fundraising efforts. These signature events include:

    1. Homecoming: A beloved tradition at Morehouse, Homecoming brings together alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends for a weekend of celebration, festivities, and reconnecting with the Morehouse community.
    2. Parents Weekend: An opportunity for parents and families to visit campus, participate in activities, and engage with faculty and staff while gaining insight into their student's college experience.
    3. "A Candle in the Dark" Gala: This prestigious event honors individuals and organizations whose contributions have made a significant impact on the college and its community. It serves as a premier fundraising opportunity for supporting various initiatives at Morehouse.
    4. Spring Fest: A vibrant celebration of the season, featuring performances, activities, and entertainment for the entire Morehouse community and its supporters.
    5. Reunion: A special gathering for alumni to reconnect with classmates, reminisce about their time at Morehouse, and support their alma mater through fundraising efforts.
