Odyssey’s Donors and Sponsors

The costs of running Odyssey are significant. Our 2018 general operating budget is $1,175,000. The average cost per student each summer is $2,500. But we are able to provide a best-in-class experience to scholars tuition-free each summer through the incredible generosity of corporations, foundations, and individuals who donate financial resources, time, and in-kind support.

Special Events

Corporate sponsors are critical to the success of Odyssey’s special events each year, including the Odyssey Annual Brunch, 5K Quest Run/ Walk, and A Night Out for Odyssey. Sponsorship benefits include marketing opportunities and invitations to participate in the events.

Heroes

As part of Odyssey’s commitment to build a secure and stable financial future for the organization, Odyssey Heroes commit to donating the four-year cost of a student’s Odyssey journey—$2,500 per year. Heroes are offered unique opportunities to engage with Odyssey students, such as invitations to attend special student events including a special graduation event celebrating our seniors. These individuals have made a unique commitment to strengthen Odyssey and offer students assurance that they are supported by a growing community in their journey through school, into college, and toward leadership beyond graduation.

We know that income and zip code are two of the best predictors of academic success. But Odyssey is working to change that. Odyssey takes the children in our city with the most limited resources, and gives them the experience and opportunities they need to soar. I support Odyssey, because Odyssey is turning dreams into reality. An Odyssey Hero
