The Foundation offers four sponsorship programs to the community to help financially support its operations.
Recommended contribution targets for industry, vendors, academic groups and non-profit organizations are listed in the table below. The program offers a suite of benefits in exchange for a contribution to the Foundation.
We would like to thank all of our Sponsors for their ongoing support of the i2b2 tranSMART Foundation!
The Board has worked closely with the management team to reduce the operations cost to include only essential items that help sustain and grow the community.
Contributing Sponsors – For Medical and Academic research centers and smaller vendors, we offer an annual sponsorship program. The suggested contribution to the Foundation is $5,000.
Corporate Sponsors – For medium and large companies, we suggest a $20,000 sponsorship for the Foundation.
Event Sponsors – Each Foundation Event usually has the potential for sponsorship, in particular by vendors who offer products and services to scientists and research teams who are using one of the software packages of the Foundation. The levels are set for each event, please see the event webpage.
Sustaining Sponsors – Several organizations provide significant on-going support that ranges from contributions of staff time, services, various types of resources and funding to to help maintain the operations of the Foundation on an ongoing basis. If your organization is interested, please contact us.
