Reach out into your community for local sponsors. It is a great way to introduce your athletes to vendors from your community and vice versa. We have had great success with this over the past 5 years at CF24.
Email, call or go visit local businesses that you think might have an interest in promoting themselves with your gym. Promote the opportunity to engage with your amazing gym members while supporting local Special Olympics athletes!
Download this letter from CF24 that provides information on the event that can be given to potential sponsors. Feel free to edit it to personalize the details from your gym.
Monetary is always great! In the absence of that, try these In-Kind approaches…
If you’ve got the space, vendors can also set up shop and sell products that your athletes will enjoy during the CF24 event. If it makes sense, a request can also be made for a portion of their sales to be donated back!
Don’t forget to reach out to your athletes for connections. The field of options becomes much greater!
Make sure to let your athletes know ahead of time if there will be vendors there so they can plan accordingly
Any National or Provincial Sponsors that are brought on board will be shared with the affiliates as soon as possible.
