Donations Wish List

Ways to Sponsor the Chapter

As a nonprofit and charitable 501(c)(3) organization, STC WDCB never has the money for items that would make our activities run more smoothly. We rely almost exclusively on corporate angels that lend us their facilities and other resources for an evening event, a Saturday workshop, or the competition. Perhaps you are in the position to help us.

Wish List

Our wish list includes, but is not limited to, the following items for our chapter activities and events.

  • Meeting room space (in Washington, DC and Baltimore metropolitan areas)
  • Competition – location space for judge’s training or consensus judging
  • Competition – awards celebration expenses
  • Competition – help a student attend the awards celebration
  • Competition – defray the cost to send a DTC entry to the STC international competition (if applicable)
  • Event catering donations
  • Avery laser name tag and tent card supplies
  • Overhead projector
  • Lapel microphone (cordless, if possible)
  • Folding aluminum easels
  • Display stands and easels
  • Large bulletin board (both cork and marker)
  • Literature displays for brochures and winning competition entries
  • Storage space for chapter archives
  • PC and Macintosh laptops with CD readers (to display online entry winners at the awards celebration)
  • Portable TV/VCR
  • Memorial award fund donations
