Often times coordinating and fundraising events take a fair amount of money to produce. You may end up spending more than the money raised during the event. The most effective way to prevent this from happening is to work with sponsors. When you attract sponsors the main objective is to find a cause you both believe in. While you want to ensure your event produces financial gain it’s also important to find the right companies that align with your brand. By brand, meaning your messaging and your target audience. The agreement has to be mutually beneficial. When both parties are on board and follow through with the deliverables, the contract and documents become a win win to both!
The key to working with corporate sponsors is to find out what matters to them and make them a winning offer! All sponsors are looking for benefits like a new business, more customers, brand loyalty/visibility. When you approach prospective sponsors, ask them what their goals and priorities are. It’s your place to show them why it’s a big benefit to them to be in front of your audience.
Once your sponsors have agreed to support you, ALWAYS follow up with a contract – and create a plan to make you both successful. Involve the sponsor in promotion so they feel like an integral part of your event. The deeper the thought you put into the partnership, the deeper the partnership will be.
