Why Sponsor?

The COLS program has been provided free-of-charge to students for over 35 years. We believe that a student's socio-economic background should not be a barrier to the development of their leadership potential.

It costs approximately 325 dollars to send a student to the seminar which includes three days of food and two nights of accommodations. Other costs include our website, registration (postage for letters), office supplies, insurance, and other administrative costs.

COLS does not pay any of its staff or volunteers. Therefore, 100 percent of our funds go directly into the seminar and its attendees.

If you are interested in donating, there are different methods available below. Donations over 10 dollars are eligible for a tax receipt. If you want to sponsor the seminar in another way (such as gifts in kind), contact us.
