General Sponsorship

Putting on a science fair is a labor of love by many volunteers. However, there is a significant cost that must also be incurred to successfully produce a science fair. It takes about $40,000 each year to produce the fair and this does not even include in-kind contributions from several organizations which defray the cost of the facilities used for the fair. About 90% of the $40,000 goes towards prizes for the students as well as covering the costs for the students to travel and compete in the state and international fairs. The remaining 10% covers out-of-pocket costs required for administration of the fair.

Monetary and in-kind donations by individuals, corporations and organizations provide the funds for operating the Dr. Nelson Ying Orange County Science Exposition. We categorize these donations into 9 levels of generosity:
