Sponsorship Packages:

Why sponsor us? Your business/organization will be exposed to incoming University of Miami students who will be commuting to and from campus throughout their entire first year. The Great Start program impacts approximately 150 new local students each year over a span of three unique weekend experiences. Our Great Start staff is also made up of 30 student volunteers who are eager to learn more about the businesses in the surrounding area.


Donation Page:

If you were a part of Great Start as a former participant, staff member or friend of the program, you know how much we appreciate and value the support of the community. Any small monetary donation helps us with making the program bigger and better each year for our incoming students.
