Become a Sponsor

If you are a business or community leader seeking to prevent suicide, AFSP wants to partner with you to save lives.

The Out of the Darkness Sponsor Program provides businesses and organizations of all sizes the opportunity to take an active role in suicide prevention. As a sponsor, your organization will benefit from visibility and goodwill on high school and college campuses across the U.S.

Since the inception of our Out of the Darkness Campus Walk series in 2010, we’ve seen revenue grow by more than 300% and participation increase by 425%. Help us reach our goal of $400,000 raised and 15,000 participants in 2013.

The money raised by our National Sponsors will be invested to fund important prevention programs, such as AFSP’s Interactive Screening Program (ISP) for use at colleges to proactively identify at-risk students and encourage them to get help, and  “Suicide Shouldn’t Be A Secret,” AFSP’s Teen Suicide Prevention Campaign.

Your company can make a difference through:

  • National Sponsorship
  • Retail Opportunities
  • Multi-Market & National Team Participation.
