"Finding Sponsors"



Friends have suggested that we find corporate sponsors for our
Children's Fishing Tournaments which are held the second Saturday of each month from April to October.

The Lancaster, Ohio Super Wal Mart store has just decided to hold their huge Spring: "Children's Miracle Network Fund Raiser" at our park: in a few weeks.

So, I guess corporations like to do this sort of opportunity.
But, how and what is the best way to approach Corporations for donations to give out to the children and in particular to the three(3) winners in each of the two age divisions?

Pastor Brad,

Your first step should be to find the community liaisons or community relations managers at each of the companies you'd like to target. If you can, get more information about their programs ahead of time. You may find that certain companies may have community interests in specific areas and you can use that information when making your pitch for support.

After finding out who the community relations personnel are and gaining a good idea about their interests, create a brief proposal that outlines why you need the support and how much you need. It might be a good idea to offer levels which would give the companies leeway with how much money they can give.

The most important part of this proposal will be, how the support fits with the company's community goals -- basically what benefit are they getting out of it.

Then, it's just a matter of getting meetings with the right people and making your pitch.

Good luck!
