Backpacks & Basics

Our Backpacks & Basics program provides backpacks filled with supplies to CMS elementary students in the highest-need schools at the beginning of each school year. For $35 per child, your company can sponsor four or more classrooms in one of the schools served by this program.

Color a Brighter Future

Color a Brighter Future is our annual philanthropy breakfast, taking place in early April. Sponsorship allows your company to reach a high-profile audience with the visibility and recognition of partnering with a well-respected charitable organization. Your company will also receive exposure through advertising and promotional efforts within the community.

South End Wine Fest

The South End Wine Fest takes place in mid October and offers you the opportunity to promote your business to a highly desirable audience. In addition to an incredible variety of wines, the festival features beer, cider, food trucks, shopping and live music. South End Wine Festival consistently attracts capacity crowds of more than 1,700 people and is the proud recipient of numerous awards.

Classroom Central Program Sponsorship

Classroom Central relies on the support and dedication of the local community for the success of programs that serve teachers and students in nearly 200 schools in our region. Because we do not receive any government funding, Classroom Central relies on local companies to support programs like our Free Store, Mobile Free Store (ClassVROOM Central), Classroom Up (online ordering for CMS teachers) and other initiatives that support teachers and students throughout the year.
