The organizers of EdCamp Cleveland are committed to making this a free event for all participants. We would rather have a small, simple, “no frills” event than have to charge people money to participate.
With that in mind, additional resources would make this event even better. Offering some coffee and pastry items in the morning helps welcome the participants and encourages them to start networking with one another right away. Lunch makes it easier for everyone to network during that time, and the schedule does not have to accommodate travel time. It is also be nice to have some giveaways to help us celebrate the experience. Although there will not be vendor booths at the event, your generosity will be publicized on the EdCamp Cleveland website and various signs throughout the school.
Supporting Sponsors have donated $500 or more in cash or products. These organizations are recognized at the opening and closing sessions, in signage around the school on the day of the event, and on the EdCamp Cleveland web site sponsor page and sidebar.
