Sponsor an Event

Sponsorship provides you with the opportunity to increase our fundraising revenues in support of our programs and increases public awareness of and sales for your business or organization.

Sponsor Benefits

  • Enhance Your Image. Research shows that sponsoring a non-profit event will give 94% of customers a more positive image of your product or company.
  • Get Noticed.  PHP events receive widespread media coverage, locally, regionally and nationally on the world-wide web, in magazines, an in local and regional print media.
  • Leverage Your Advertising Dollar. The estimated value of each sponsorship level is far greater than your monetary investment.
  • Differentiate. PHP has achieved an extraordinary level of credibility and recognition throughout the region for efficient and effective service to those in need. Polo Classic attendees are consumers who support PHP and its charitable works. Since customers buy from businesses that reflect their values, your support of PHP demonstrates your charitable values encouraging guests to emotionally connect to your brand in a compelling and meaningful way.

Successful fundraising events depend upon support from the community in order to achieve their intended goals. When you or your organization make a contribution that is applied toward the cost of supplies, equipment, advertising, printing, or any of the costs associated with running an event, you are ensuring that People Helping People will have additional funds available to help those in need.
