Sponsorship Opportunities


Investing in ISTAR offers ways for you to connect with and give back to the community. Edmonton can take pride in its reputation as an international leader. For many years people have been traveling to Edmonton to receive specialized treatment for their speech difficulties. Our Calgary office has offered the same services since 2005. ISTAR is a world renowned non-profit organization that provides therapy to people of all ages who stutter. Alberta is home to ISTAR, the only clinic of its kind in North America.

Stuttering can be a devastating condition, affecting many areas of life. Most people who stutter report a greatly enhanced quality of life when they gain control over their speech disorder. Many of these individuals experience a great boost in their self-confidence and self-esteem which leads to more success in personal, social and vocational areas of their lives.

We invite leaders in the business community to join us in our efforts to give people who stutter back their voice. We are seeking sponsorship in support of four main areas:

  • Treatment clinics
  • The ICAP Fund (Client Assistance)
  • “Voice of ISTAR” information sessions
  • Special events

In return we offer your business significant corporate recognition of this sponsorship opportunity.

It is our hope that you will consider making an investment in ISTAR. For more information on how to get involved, please contact us at 780-492-2619 or istar@ualberta.ca.

Our clients have a voice and thanks to your company’s support, they can be heard!
