Call for sponsors of youth mental health

Beacon Tree Foundation, advocates for youth mental health

Trees of Hope 2019

Date: Sat, 04/27/2019
Time: 6:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Location: Lewis Ginter Botanical Garde
Tickets$50 each

Every year, the nonprofit for which I’ve been part of for nine years now has an event called Trees of Hope. It’s a youth concert with some short presentations about the work we do.

This fundraiser supports a program called OnRamp that pays for youth psychological evaluations and gap funding for treatment when insurance, medicaid, or other government programs don’t pay. We call it OnRamp Family Funding because you can’t access a highway without an onramp. And you can’t get treatment without the diagnostic assessment. We are also partnering for the Preventure Pilot but that is funded by a grant so this fundraiser is exclusively for OnRamp.

Example of what caseworkers send us:
(Identifying information has been changed/removed to protect identity)

Basilio is a 15-year-old victim of physical and sexual abuse without insurance who was in dire need of mental health treatment.

A recently completed psychological evaluation revealed a Trauma and Stressor disorder (a PTSD-like diagnosis). The family lives in poverty and although they have access to discounted therapy services, they have been unable to afford the discounted rated of $10-15 per session and had to stop treatment after several sessions. It’s unimaginable that these services kept this young man from receiving treatment for his trauma.

Basilio was approved for $900 worth of individual and family trauma treatment

What I’m looking for is sponsors for the event and the levels are below. We also have a memorial brick program and you can see examples of that below. Thank you for consideration. We do a pretty darn good job of offering our sponsors/businesses exposure and gratitude.

I am the mother of two boys and the owner of emotionally naked, a site that reached a quarter million people in its first 18 months. I am a writer and professional public speaker on the topics of suicide, addiction, mental illness, and grief and currently working on getting a book published. I lost my youngest son, Charles, 20, to suicide June 5, 2015. As talented and funny as Charles was, letting other people know they matter was his greatest gift. And now the legacy I try and carry forward in my son's memory.
