TEDxJacksonville is a grass-roots event organized by local volunteers who care deeply about creating a better future for our community. We receive funding from leading individuals and organizations in Jacksonville and Northeast Florida who believe in the power of ideas to change the world and our community. In exchange, we provide promotional benefits and immense gratitude to each of our partners.

Financial contributions to TEDxJacksonville are applied directly to our event production costs, which pale in comparison to the incredible in-kind support we receive from local businesses and the countless hours that our volunteers dedicate to bringing each event to life.


The Fine Print
TEDxJacksonville follows the TED rules for sponsorships. We do not accept contributions from organizations who deal in weapons or ammunition, tobacco products or cigarettes, or adult-oriented products or services. Furthermore, our partners have no editorial control or veto power over our event program, and they are ineligible to present from the stage. TEDxJacksonville speakers are not paid, and no one can pay to be part of our program. Speaker selection is based on the merit of each speaker’s application.

TEDxJacksonville is a non-profit enterprise organized, managed and presented by an all-volunteer team that believes in the power of collective genius to change the Jacksonville community. Our mission is to be the stage that bridges inspired ideas with open minds. But we can’t build that stage without your help.

By donating any monetary amount, no matter how small, you will make a difference.

Your monetary support helps underwrite the production costs associated with mounting not just the main TEDxJacksonville conference each October, but also the numerous Salons and Simulcasts we host throughout the year. Our annual budget is met by ticket sales, sponsorships, and private donations. Our expenses include facilities, equipment rental, printing, catering, video and audio recording, and all the support needed to put on these diverse events. Each and every dollar raised for TEDxJacksonville goes directly back into creating the highest quality experiences for our attendees.

Your donation is fully tax deductible.
