Our Sponsors

Just Get In Touch!

Where does the funding get spent?

Making stone float is no easy task. Along with the numerous hours we spend on designing and testing concrete mixes, the entire cycle also includes hull design software, casting materials, construction tools, CNC milling, paddler training and transportation to the competition – all of which costs money. This is why we need your help. Your donations will be spent on obtaining new materials to test and refine our concrete mixes, rent a pool and a canoe for the paddlers to train in as well as purchase tools and supplies such as mixers, scales, screws, nails, wood and dust masks. Furthermore, because the competition calls for professionalism, the presentation of the canoe is also very important. Therefore, we also spend money on sanding and staining our final product and the assembly of a lavish display table at competition.

Aside from monetary donations, can I also contribute materials?

Of course! As we are required to build a canoe every year, we are constantly refining and looking for innovative materials to be used in our concrete mix. Material samples are always welcome.

How much should I be contributing?

As a guideline, we have divided sponsors into three levels.

  • Bronze level $100 - $499
  • Silver level: $500 - $999
  • Gold level: $1000+
  • Technical and Material Sponsors are also very highly valued, and is a great chance to be unique. We genuinely appreciate this kind of support, and we may be able to do something special for you as well!

    How will I be recognized?

    The University of Toronto Concrete Canoe Team is one of the largest engineering design team at the university and we are highly visible at many school events. After all, it is hard to miss an entire canoe. Every year, we create a sponsorship banner that we bring to events such as the U of T Engineering Society Club’s Day, U of T Student Union Club’s Day, U of T Discovery Day for parents and prospective students and the U of T Frosh for a Day event, just to name a few. In addition, you will be recognized via our team website and we can even place a link to your company’s website. Every sponsor will also have their company logo added to the back of our team t-shirts for that competition year.

    What do I get?

    In order to show our appreciation for your donations, we will send you our official team t-shirt, a team photo CD of the year’s work and the competition and invitation to our Sponsorship Reception featuring the unveiling of our canoe. Gold level sponsors will also receive a copy of our technical report and a framed picture of our entire team.
