Sponsor an Event

Sponsorship provides you with the opportunity to increase public awareness of and sales for your business or organization while helping us raise the funds necessary to continue providing essential services for the clients we serve.

Sponsor Benefits

  • Enhance Your Image: Research shows that sponsoring a nonprofit event will give 94% of customers a more positive image of your product or company.
  • Get Noticed: PHP events receive widespread local, regional and national radio/television/print media coverage in addition to internet/social media advertising.
  • 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. Event 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 our intended goals. When you or your organization make a contribution you are ensuring that People Helping People will have the funds available to help our most vulnerable neighbors change their lives for the better.
