Sponsorship


Dear Friends of Elyssa’s Mission,

Our 13th annual benefit, Race to Save Young Lives, is going VIRTUAL on July 18, 2020. We hope you will consider sponsoring this important event.

Elyssa’s Mission is a non-profit organization that provides resources to support at-risk teens and prevent suicide. Elyssa’s Mission fully funds and implements the evidence-based Signs of Suicide (SOS) program in middle and high schools throughout Illinois. SOS educates teens on warning signs and what to do if they are concerned about themselves or a friend. SOS also helps identify at-risk students and link them to essential mental health services. We assist with all components of the SOS program including planning, training, teaching and follow-up. In the last two years, Elyssa’s Mission has educated over 141,000 students and hospitalized 279 teens. You can help us save these precious young lives.

Now more than ever, we need your help to protect our children from the impact COVID-19 is having in our homes and in our communities. Consequences from the pandemic can include heightened risk factors, potentially leading to increased suicides in the coming months, and even years. Together we can reduce the deleterious effects of mental illness and help keep the number of suicides at bay. In the fall, we expect that new and partnering schools will be reaching out at a higher level than ever before in order to support the transition back to school.

Your partnership enables Elyssa’s Mission to continue to provide the programs and resources so urgently needed to prevent teen suicides. At last year’s benefit, we successfully raised $250,000, enabling us to fund critical SOS programming in 50 new schools in 2019-2020. For this, we are enormously grateful. Currently we partner with over 250 schools. With your sponsorship, we will be able to expand our reach to yet another 50 schools. We never turn a school away!

We want to thank you for partnering with Elyssa’s Mission in our Race to Save Young Lives. We know we couldn’t do this lifesaving work without YOU!!
