Have you been considering supporting your community in a more meaningful way? Are you thankful for help you have received and feel like your business is in a good position to give back? Does your faith organization want to feel more connected within Harrisonburg and Rockingham County while still fulfilling your mission?
If you answered yes to any of these, we invite you to sponsor the Central Valley Habitat for Humanity annual fundraising banquet! Our mission to provide low-income individuals and families with partnership in reaching their goal of homeownership in a way that provides them with safe, decent, and affordable housing.
This year, our theme is, “Hope is a Call to Action.” There are 1,407 low-income families living in unaffordable housing in the City of Harrisonburg. Unaffordable housing can mean many things, including that it could be unsafe, inadequate for their family size, overpriced, overcrowded, under-maintained, and that they’re paying more than 50% of their monthly income just on housing.
Act today and answer our call to help us partner with even more families in search of a home.
In the wise words of Thomas Edison, “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” Will you take action today and take this opportunity to make a difference? Find out below how you can become a Habitat Hero and choose the sponsorship level that is right for you!
At first glance our sponsorship levels may look overwhelming, but we’re here to guide you through the process!
We have sponsorship levels available from $500 to $6,000 so that you can choose what is right for your business at this time. Each level comes with corresponding ways that we will advertise what your business has done to support our community. These include places where we feature your logo and give opportunities for your business to be a part of our newsletter that reaches over 3,500 of our local supporters each quarter via mail and email.
Some sponsorships only have one available spot because they come with extras such as signage and special comments at the event about your business or organization.
How to Choose Your Level
Step 1: Decide if you want to claim a sponsorship with only one available spot
These include the following levels:
- Presenting Sponsor $6,000
- Food Sponsor $5,000
- Auction Sponsor $2,000
Each of these levels comes with special perks not available to other levels with multiple available. By choosing one of these levels, your business will receive more marketing opportunities to get your logo (and your support of your local community!) out to the public and attendees.
Of these, the Presenting Sponsor offers the highest placement and priority. By choosing to be the presenting sponsor of this event, your logo and name will be connected to the event and our logo anywhere that we advertise, including social and print media. There is only one of these available and your name will reach thousands of new customers and constituents over the course of the next few months leading up to the event.
Step 2: Choose from one of our other many levels of sponsorship
We know that the past year has been difficult for many organizations financially, so when our committee sat down to discuss sponsorship levels this year, we wanted to have something for everyone!
The below levels can be sponsored by more than one organization:
- Raise the Roof $3,000
- Progress Builder $2,000
- Publicity $1,500
- Golden Shovel $1,000
- Helping Hand $500
If your business wants to maximize your advertising with our organization, the Raise the Roof sponsor is the ONLY multi-availability sponsorship that provides a newsletter article! Sponsoring at this level means you have the opportunity to reach over 3,500 new customers or constituents in our local community.
From there the levels decrease in extras, but each level comes with a guarantee that your logo or name will reach our full audience.
Step 3: Contact us to reserve your sponsorship and receive an invoice or a link to online payment
You’ve made the compassionate decision to sponsor our event and provide affordable housing for families in need! Thank you for your support!
Your next step is to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org letting our team know what level of sponsorship you’ve chosen, your logo, and social media handles so we can tag you in our posts. We will connect you with our Office and Finance Coordinator to invoice your business by email or mail, an online payment link, or an address for you to send a check.
If you’ve made it this far, congratulations on becoming a Habitat Hero in Harrisonburg and Rockingham County!
