The WDI has a proud history of collaborating with the finest college and university debate teams in the nation. Help us develop gender diversity in debate by becoming a WDI University sponsor. Your sponsorship will go directly for the participation costs of your sponsored student – not to overhead, not to staff, not to fundraising. The WDI is a 501(c)3 non-profit, and we are proud that 70% of our annual revenue comes from donations by individuals, universities, and foundations.
If your school would like to become a WDI University Sponsor, consider these options:
Sponsor the attendance of a talented debater at the WDI for $350.00. We will match your team with a student who lives in your region or is considering attending your school.
Donate any amount – $50, $100, $1000. We will use those funds to finance travel for our students, special events at camp, and travel expenses for our all-volunteer staff of incredible college debaters.
If your team would like more information about the WDI University Sponsorship program, please contact Beth Mendenhall.
