History of Sprinkle Caldwell

Our current emphasis on research grew from deep and fulfilling work with The Association of Boarding Schools. During the summer of 2009 we began managing TABS (The Association of Boarding Schools) sponsorship program. In the midst of the recession we worked closely with TABS and grew the program more than 30%. In the winter of 2010 we helped ERB (Educational Records Bureau) its sponsorship program. The second year of the program produced a sellout of the conference exhibit.

In subsequent years our growth and sustainability record remains strong. We find that our intimate experience with a school’s internal workings, strong relationships with nonprofit organizations, and world class customer service with sponsoring businesses has resulted in the growth and enthusiasm of our company. How can we help you?

Bringing together educational nonprofits, corporate partners and schools.

What’s in a Name?

What’s in a Logo?

Sprinkle Caldwell is named after Willie Caldwell and Dr. Henry C. Sprinkle.

Willie Caldwell was a carpenter in Ashe County who taught me how to build and gave me the best advice I ever received. He said, “Never let a chance to say nothing pass you by.”

Dr. Henry C. Sprinkle was a minister to missionaries worldwide, a brilliant academician (Duke, Duke Divinity, Yale, and Cambridge) and my great uncle; he helped me discover my talent and aptitude with technology and systems.

“Kai – means to begin, to venture forth, to develop,” the image of opening new doors. It comes from an ancient pictogram showing hands opening the latch of a traditional Chinese-style door.
