College Patrons and Sponsors
Funding for the College is provided solely by our Fellows and their professional firms through dues, event sponsorships and – most significantly – the Patrons & Sponsors Program. Your firm’s support for that Program is critical to the continuation and expansion of College activities, including educational programs, annual meeting and induction events, committee activities (including our newly formed DEI Committee), the National Bankruptcy Archives, and grants through the American College of Bankruptcy Foundation. We are proud and grateful that in 2022 over 160 of the professional firms with which our Fellows are associated participated in the Program as a Sustaining Patron, Patron, Sponsor or Supporter.
We are excited to once again offer a deep discount for sponsoring firms to participate in the International Bankruptcy Course. The classes are presented live (via Zoom) on 13 consecutive Tuesday nights starting January 17, 2023. Click here for more information on the 2023 International Bankruptcy Course.
The College and its Fellows continue to play a critical role in supporting the revitalization of businesses and individuals grappling with inflation, rising interest rates and other growing economic stressors. And the need for pro bono support from the Foundation – funded in large part by the College – has never been greater. (Please note that the Foundation will be reaching out to Fellows in October to solicit their individual charitable contributions made directly to the Foundation.) While we understand that all firms are examining their spending and sponsorship priorities closely, we hope that the College’s important work will remain a priority for you and your firm.
Induction into the College not only recognizes the important contributions that each of our Fellows has made to the profession and their communities but offers a collective opportunity to continue making a meaningful impact. We would be most grateful for your firm's continued – or upgraded – support of the Patrons & Sponsors Program, enabling the College to fulfill our mission to enhance professionalism, scholarship and service in bankruptcy and insolvency law and practice.
