About PAIS Corporate Sponsorship
Pennsylvania Association of Independent Schools (PAIS) invites companies and/or organizations that provide products or services to independent schools to become a PAIS Corporate Sponsor. PAIS is a nonprofit, service organization, a 501(c)(3) entity, whose mission is to represent and support member independent schools in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and Delaware. Through services including, but not limited to, a standards-based accreditation for schools, professional development for school personnel and local and national advocacy for independent education, PAIS promotes and safeguards the interests of independent schools in Pennsylvania and Delaware.
Corporate Sponsorship will help your company or organization gain wide visibility and connect with the PAIS membership of over 100 schools. While Corporate Sponsorship is not an endorsement*, it does provide sponsors with enhanced visibility and exposure within the Association and to its members, and offers PAIS member schools useful resources that will assist them in providing services to their students and families. Your sponsorship will support the mission of PAIS and help to underwrite PAIS professional development programs, not only by making them more affordable to a wider body of faculty members and administrators, but also by making them more readily available.
Once a sponsorship application has been approved, the company may work with the Office of Professional Development to provide professional learning opportunities for PAIS member schools and personnel. Corporate Circle or Event Sponsorship are the only avenues through which an individual company may present knowledge and information sessions or workshops to PAIS member schools.

* Corporate Sponsors are not endorsed by PAIS, which reserves the right to revoke sponsorship status at any time that the Executive Director determines the sponsor’s business purposes and functions to be inconsistent with the core values of PAIS and its member schools.
