Friendship Walk is a great opportunity for local businesses to get involved with our cause and establish a mutually beneficial relationship with the organization. Through Walk sponsor recognition benefits, the sponsor is seen by the community as a charitable organization. In addition, depending on sponsorship level, the organization is promoted on Walk collateral and T-shirts, and during Supporting events and on Walk day. By engaging sponsors, Best Buddies benefits from increased community involvement, which results in more awareness and funds.
The Sponsorship Committee had the responsibility of being the primary lead for recruiting local sponsors to the event and strengthening existing relationships. It’s your job to secure sponsorship dollars, as well as products and services from businesses to increase revenue and reduce expenses. You’ll also identify opportunities to engage the business community in our mission through Friendship Walk. The Sponsorship Committee is responsible for engaging sponsors in Walk activities, ensuring benefit fulfillment, thanking and recognizing sponsors and continuously cultivating relationships.
