“We’re thrilled to have the support of 15 outstanding organizations as Founding Sponsors,” said Louis Capozzi, president of the Foundation. “These leaders are helping us in our effort to drive diversity in public relations.”
Founding Sponsors contribute $15,000, with the option to renew each year. The companies include:
The Coca Cola Company

Additionally, Wells Fargo has committed $20,000 a year for three years to support the PRIME research initiatives.
“Through partnerships with the United Negro College Fund, the Arthur Page Society, the PR Council, the Plank Center and major universities, we fund programs and research aimed at attracting more minority students to careers in public relations,” said Capozzi. “The generosity of these donors makes our programs possible.”
