Friends of Page solicits personal gifts from individuals. Supporters are recognized throughout the year online, at larger conferences in onsite signage and receive a special “Friend of Page” lapel pin.

Page is a 501(c)3 organization, and personal gifts to Page are tax deductible in the U.S. For more information, including a list of this year's Friends of Page, please visit this page.

Page aims to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in the industry through several programs. Each program requires significant staff time and, in some cases, program expenses. Page seeks underwriters whose support helps to offset the costs of these programs.


  • Mentoring to Accelerate Progress and Success (M.A.P.S.), a mentorship program for professionals of color at all career levels, who are paired with Page and Page Up members that meet at least four times throughout the year.
  • Leaders of Tomorrow, an in-person series of 2-hour networking events that bring together members and PR professionals of color, often including a panel conversation.
  • Diverse Future, a week-long executive education retreat for communicators of color. Registration fees offset most of the cost, but not all of it.

Sponsorship options include supporting one of these programs to underwriting a program in its entirety, which can range from $5,000-$20,000.
