Once a Founder, always a Founder ®
Any individual or organization donating $100 or more will receive Founder recognition, including recognition as a GIPA Founder on our website, in various email and social communications, and at our marquee events year after year. The Founding Status Tier is determined by the cumulative contribution received by GIPA, allowing individuals and organizations to increase their status year over year!
General Sponsorships and sponsorship of specific events also can qualify individuals and organizations as a Founder.
