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