Event Sponsorship

Every year, Generation Hope holds two fundraising events, our annual gala and our “Pancake Battle”. Our annual gala, "Pep Rally Under the Stars,” takes place in June in Washington, D.C., and is the organization's largest fundraiser.  The "Pancake Battle" will have teams comprised of corporate sponsors, Generation Hope Scholars, and a local education celebrity. These teams will face off to see who can make the best pancakes, which will be determined by the votes of donors, sponsors, and other guests. This year it will take place on October 20, 2018 at Mess Hall DC in Washington, D.C. Please contact Founder & CEO Nicole Lynn Lewis at or 202-656-8704 to find out more about sponsorship levels and recognition opportunities at these fun and impactful events.



Rarely, when I donate money, do I expect the majority of the contribution to have a direct impact, as it is with Generation Hope.
