Sponsorship & Advertising Opportunities


Supporting Students Since 1922

Our Story

The SAIT Students’ Association (Saitsa) is a non-profit organization working, independently from SAIT, to support and enhance the lives of over 15,000 SAIT students.

We do this by providing essential services such as the Emergency Food Bank, Christmas Adopt-a-Family, student awards, free tax filing, a Peer Support Centre, first aid and naloxone training, locker rentals and more.

We operate student-favourite businesses such as The Odyssey Cafe and the Station Market convenience stores and host a wide-variety of student events including Fall Welcome Week and Winter Polar Jam, various expos, trivia & bingo events, as well as music and comedy events.

And last, but not least, we represent SAIT students to all levels of government and the institution, ensuring that policymakers are aware of what matters to SAIT students.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Emergency Food Fund

Saitsa’s Emergency Food Fund is designed to support SAIT students who are experiencing food insecurity due to financial hardships. During the 2021/2022 the demand for this program was so overwhelming we were in the unfortunate position of having to suspend the program before the end of the winter semester.

As a sponsor of the Emergency Food Fund, you’ll help us ensure that no student goes hungry and students will remember your generosity.

If support and community are values your organization believes in, this might be the sponsorship program for you.


Title Sponsorship $5000

  • Name/logo featured on all printed and digital materials (i.e. posters, flyers, rack cards, social media posts, website ads)
  • 30% discount on any additional advertising assets
Wellness Bank

At Saitsa we believe that hygiene should be a basic right, not a luxury. Which is why we’ve created the Wellness Bank to help students in-need get essential hygiene items such as shampoo, conditioner, toothbrushes, toothpaste, toilet paper, deodorant, feminine hygiene products and more.

Like the Emergency Food Fund, this program was also met with an overwhelming demand that saw us ending the program before the end of the Winter semester. As a sponsor of the Wellness Bank, you’ll help us ensure that students have access to the hygiene products they need regardless of their financial status.

If support and community are values your organization puts first, this might be the program for you.

Adopt-A-Family (Seasonal)

The Adopt-A-Family program is a seasonal program that runs in the months leading up the winter holiday season. Over 25% of SAIT students identify as parents and/or caregivers and Saitsa knows that the holiday season is tough for some families and the Adopt-A-Family program provides support for families in need to make sure they have a happy holiday season.

As a sponsor for the Adopt-A-Family program you can help put smiles on the faces of SAIT students and their families.

If your organization loves spreading holiday cheer and making sure that no family gets left behind, this could be the sponsorship program for you.


Title Sponsorship $5000

Student Grant Program

During the 2021/2022 school year the Saitsa Student Grant Program provided nearly $15,000 in reimbursements helping students with everything from First Aid training to Green-Energy certification.

As the brand-name sponsor for Saitsa Student Grant Program you’ll be invested in helping students enhance their education through extra-curricular courses, certifications, conferences and more. And by investing in students, you’ll be investing in the community.

If personal development and community building are values your organization believes in, this might be the sponsorship program for you.
