Walk Sponsorship

Why support CAP of Lake County: According to the American Community 5-year Survey 2012-2016, Lake County has a population of 703,462 of which 8.9% are below the poverty level. Every year, the number of clients served through our organization continues to increase as well as the funds needed to support these services. Our funding from local and federal agencies requires us to share some of the total program cost. The Why I Walk is designated to raise funds and awareness for the services and programs provided by Community Action Partnership of Lake County.

By becoming a Sponsor you can make a significant contribution to fight the War on Poverty and play a central role helping in changing the lives of others. Your partnership will be highlighted at our Partner Reception and within the Walk/Reunion promotional campaign, which extends into virtually every medium.
