Lifetime Patrons

The Lifetime Patron program was established to recognize the corporations, institutions, and individuals who have financially supported the Society of Sensory Professionals on an ongoing basis. 

All sponsorships will be credited towards the Lifetime Patrons status. Donations made for the advancement of the society or its members will be added on a lifetime accrued basis. Therefore each time a donation is made, it will be entered into a running total with all preceding gifts reflecting the total level of commitment. Examples of “qualifying contributions” include donations to the foundation of the organization, awards for student members, and support of the conferences including but not limited to meals, events, and conference gifts.

Gifts of corporate products or advertisements placed in the conference program or the accompanying promotional bags will not be included. This extends to the cost of exhibition booth rentals which is specifically designed to promote the donor and not SSP.

Levels for Patrons are as follows:

  • $1,000 – Topaz
  • $2,500 – Bronze
  • $5,000 – Silver
  • $10,000 – Gold
  • $25,000 – Diamond
  • $50,000 – Platinum
  • $100,000 – Sapphire
  • $500,000 – Emerald
  • $1,000,000 – Ruby

Patron donations to the society may be made by emailing the SSP treasurer.
