Sponsorship Opportunities

Become a sponsor of the Presidio Institute Fellows Program and Speaker Series! The Presidio Institute Fellows program is the signature leadership education initiative designed for mid- and late-career professionals working across the nation in business, nonprofits, philanthropy, academia, and government. Fellows bring a diversity of expertise and experiences; a desire to learn and contribute, and a passion for solving complex problems by applying learning to projects in their communities, throughout the nation, and across the world.
