Sponsors & Partners

Kate GoodallThe Halcyon Incubator believes in investing in entrepreneurs that have a real possibility to make a measurable social impact. The fellows will leave the security of a job, salary and the comfort of their homes. S&R Foundation’s choice to support social entrepreneurs is a challenging financial endeavor and would not be possible without the assistance of sponsors.

Organizations and individuals who invest in the Halcyon Incubator will benefit from recognition in press, online and collateral materials, and have opportunities to participate in numerous program activities, including lectures and events and access to the Halcyon Incubator for informal business gatherings.

Overhead and general operational costs for the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization are covered by the founders' contributions and use of existing assets. All tax-deductible contributions to the Halcyon Incubator go directly to support the program.

We are proud to be sponsored by some of the leading organizations focused on social impact in the Washington, DC community. To learn more about sponsorship opportunities, please view details here and contact Kate Goodall at 202.298.6007 or k.goodall@sandr.org.
