We offer unique partner programs designed to solve your fundraising problems through sponsorships that produce sustainable revenue. These partner programs solve several problems with traditional fundraising.:
- Due to economic declines, families and local businesses have less available funds for supporting charitable causes.
- Traditional fundraising activities do not generate funds after the conclusion of that event.
- Local businesses, the biggest source of fundraising for schools and non profits, get limited benefits. Other than increasing their brand and recognition as supporters of their local community, there is no way to measure an increase in business and profits directly related to their investment.
When schools and organizations partner with local businesses to help them succeed, it creates a win-win. Leveraging their sponsor relationship with you, this arrangement helps them to increase their brand, community exposure, market share, customers and profits – all because of their sponsorship arrangement and participation in a revolutionary website designed for their local business success.
Instead of income limited to a particular fundraising event, sponsorships based on this model are likely to drive more sponsors to you and produce sustainable revenue. Learn more about this partner fundraising model for schools and non profits.
School District Sponsorship allows local businesses and professionals to support a school district by advertising their business within fundraising activities within that district. Funds raised may be used to outfit athletic teams with new uniforms, practice gear, sporting equipment, practice facilities, travel expenses, and all of the necessities that the schools, clubs, and organizations need.
Our goal through district school sponsorships is to create a win-win opportunity where the sponsoring business can quickly realize a return on their investment. We structure sponsorships to provide maximum exposure for the sponsor. Instead of limiting advertising to a single event, our sponsorship plans provide advertising and media exposure during multiple events or venues throughout the school campus. This provides an opportunity for the sponsor to reach every resident in the school district. The advertiser get repeated exposure for their business which can significantly increase customers from their community support.
Businesses may become a corporate partner of a local school district to enhance their company’s community relations efforts. This association promotes a community wide feeling that the business embraces and recognizes the importance of education as an integral component in their community’s future. Corporate sponsorships also increase and maximize brand awareness of the company’s products and services.
Our partnerships benefit the students through the creation of scholarships and mentoring programs, facility upgrades, booster club discount programs and increased fundraising opportunities. The school district’s residents benefit as the partnerships help control the local school’s expenses.
