What is sponsorship?

“A commercial partnership between two parties with different interests who come together to support a particular activity”

Sponsorship is a great way to finance some of the activities or events that your group is involved in. Sponsorship can also offer products and services, such as discounts on products or even free goods. Companies may also offer skill exchanges, employability workshops and mentoring as forms of sponsorship.

Sponsorship opportunities can vary, and might include:

Sponsoring the whole group

Any publications that you may produce

Publicity information

Clothing (t-shirts, hoodies, sports kit)

Equipment or resources

Receiving discounts on services or products

Events (debates, balls, training, competitions, tours)

Competitions (get companies to donate prizes)

Transport costs


Remember to be creative, innovative and enterprising - use your sponsorship deals to add value!
