Over the last 15 years, we’ve struggled to get our equipment from one location to the next often renting trucks, borrowing trailers from close friends like Connexus Percussion Inc, and more. This is a challenge as the Saints don’t have a fixed rehearsal or storage location and makes travel, rehearsal, and general logistics difficult. We’ve reached a critical moment in our programs and need your help to take this next step! Help us raise funds for a 30 foot trailer to support our drum corps & a 16 foot trailer to support our community center & winterguard programs!
Sponsoring our program is not only a great way to be further involved in the community; it’s an amazing form of marketing for businesses, non-profits, and supporters. Our programs serve over 100 youth annually, perform at numerous parades, and festivals, and travel the US over 5,000 miles annually competing against teams from as far countries such as Japan, Canada, UK, Thailand in venues like Georgia Dome (Atlanta Falcons), University of Whitewater Stadium, and more. We have a strong social media presence with 5000+ followers, with video and photo content produced regularly. Yearly, numerous newspaper, and online articles are written about the impact of our programs and shared throughout supporting networking. That means your business, non-profit or individual entity will have branding in front of thousands of people and generate over 5000 impressions in the Columbus area and abroad. With that type of exposure, everyone will remember that you supported our programs!
This year, we are asking for tiered donations of $100, $250, $500, $1000, & $2000 for some of the following:
- Certificate of sponsorship and large photo, suitable for public display ($100)
- Name listed as sponsor in all publications (newsletters, programs, etc.) ($250)
- Your logo on 2018 t-shirt, parade banner, & equipment trailer ($500)
- Unique social media content, highlighting your business with on-site visit from our media team, high quality photos, and on-camera interviews promoting your business ($1000)
- Saints perform at your local business, or event ($2000)
- Full program details listed in below:
Unfortunately, providing youth programming is expensive and we work diligently yearly to keep the costs low for participants through supporters like you. We ask for sponsorship to help subsidize the cost of equipment (instruments, equipment travel trailer, rehearsal facilities, uniforms), travel expenses, scholarships for players who have financial challenges, and travel expenses.
We understand that you have several choices when considering different marketing and community outreach opportunities, but we truly believe that this is a great fit. If you want something a little more customized in return for your sponsorship or would like to make an in-kind donation, we are very open to your ideas. You are making Central Ohio a better place to live for our youth.. If you have any questions, please contact me directly at (Office) 614-859-2982, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
