The Shirley Chisholm Cultural Institute (SCCI) is cordially inviting you to participate as a sponsor in our inaugural virtual SCCI Awards Ceremony in tribute to Congresswoman Chisholm’s legacy honoring those who are continuing her legacy on Friday, November 5, 2021, hosted by Celebrity Host and Radio Personality Angela Yee.

It is the mission of The Shirley Chisholm Cultural Institute, founded by Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm in 1977 and her colleagues, to provide opportunities and cultural experiences for all ages to utilize economic, educational, health, and recreational resources in our communities.  The newly created SCCI Board, restoring an institution that had went to sleep due to the aging and passing of previous members, consists of thought leaders, entrepreneurs, and creatives from an array of fields who understand the relevance of her legacy.  SCCI’s goal is to preserve Congresswoman Chisholm’s legacy through the initiatives cultivated in 1977 with 21st-century activism and innovation. 

The SCCI Awards Ceremony will serve as a kickoff leading into a year-long celebration of Congresswoman Chisholm’s 50th anniversary in 2022 of her run for President of the United States, serving as the first African American woman to run in a major party.  The event will consist of awarding honorees who are continuing the legacy in the categories of Truth to Power Award, Unbought Unbossed Award, and Catalyst for Change Scholarship. 

 

As we look forward to growing the legacy of the 56-year institution, we are excited to invite sponsors, such as yourself, to our day of celebration.  The success of this event will be due to your sponsorship. Please see the attached deck for your review.  For additional information on sponsorship levels, please feel free to contact us.

Funds raised will go to support the initiatives of the Shirley Chisholm Cultural Institute. Thank you in advance for your kindness and participation in supporting this special event.
