One Step Closer

Sponsor Name: Alexis Lungu

Location: London

Sector: Not For Profit

Budget: Over 100k

Social Links

Through the auction of a series of photographic portraits of your favorite familiar faces, we aim to raise funds in support of Under One Sky, a London-based not-for-profit charity set up to support vulnerable communities in society, specifically the homeless community.

Target Audience

Our targeted demographic is rather broad given that homelessness is a universal issue. We would target people who have the funds to support the auction, are charitable and are interested in the arts.

Key Dates and Timings

We are first seeking sponsorship through April 2025 for our work in London, but will need sponsorship over the next 2 years as well as we move into the NY and LA chapters, each of which will support a local charity that focuses on the local homeless community.

Specific Opportunity Details

Our goal is to have a gala auction of these portraits in London in Winter 24-25 in tandem with an online auction, followed by an exhibit in the Spring. While our current focus is in London, we are simultaneously laying the groundwork to follow up with auctions/exhibits both in NY and LA.

Features and Benefits

What a sponsor would receive is based on the amount of sponsorship, but at our highest level, we offer the largest logo (next to ours) on the gala step & repeat, 10 min speaking slot at the gala, logo on the cover of the gala programme and ad space on the back cover, 3 tables at the gala, and logo on the cover of the photography book we plan to release at the end of the project.

Other Partners

We do not have other partners on board at this time.


We are seeking sponsors to help us reach our goal of £500,000 that will sustain us over the next few years as we produce each chapter of this project.
