As a corporate investor, your contribution showcases your company’s commitment to the underserved youth in our community who are working to achieve their dreams of a college degree.

Making Waves Foundation invites local corporations to support our college success program, CAP, through annual donationsevent sponsorships, or through the establishment of a named scholarship.

CAP’s goal is simple yet profound: help low-income and first-generation students earn a college degree without taking on crippling student loans. Making Waves Foundation’s college success program, CAP, is coaching nearly 700 college students. Each student receives one-on-one coaching, financial literacy training, professional development, and need-based scholarships throughout their college experience—working to help them graduate college with as close to zero-debt as possible.


CAP Graduation Gala

June 26, 2020

A joyous evening celebrating CAP students who have graduated from college. This year we will be celebrating the largest ever number of college graduates from the CAP program! Celebrate this milestone and support our CAP program through one of the following sponsorship levels:

  • Principal Sponsor: $10,000
  • Lead Sponsor: $5,000
  • Event Sponsor: $2,500

All sponsorships will support CAP’s high-impact coaching and need-based scholarships. As an appreciation of your company’s support, we offer broad recognition at the event through event signage and program as well as complimentary tickets to the event where your executives will sit with CAP graduates and engage in meaningful conversation about their inspirational journeys.




In addition to the recognition listed above, Principal Sponsors have the opportunity to have their logo on the print invitation and to speak at the event about their company’s commitment to the community.
