For 28 years, Greater Boston businesses and service providers like Bank of New York Mellon, Cambridge Trust Company, Constant Contact, Citi, Eaton Vance Investment Managers, and IBM, field teams of spellers to compete for the Championship Cup. Attendees are treated to drinks, dinner and a few hours of entertaining competition, the proceeds from which make an enormous and ongoing difference in our communities.

Sponsorship is an investment that provides an unparalleled return because adult literacy prepares determined adults to move into the workforce with the essential skills needed in the 21st century.
