2019 Sponsorship Opportunities & Overview
What is a sponsorship? A sponsorship is a relationship between your business and an organization whose members have a need or desire for the products or services you sell. Unlike a donation to a charity, a sponsorship allows you to purchase access to the buying power of the organization’s members so you can market your business to a new set of prospective customers.
What are the benefits of being a sponsor? There are dozens of good reasons to sponsor an organization. Here are some that might be most important to you:
- Increase the visibility of your company through the activities of the organization you are sponsoring
- Increase your business’ reach through an affiliation with an organization that is influential in its industry
- Grow your customer base by meeting potential customers who may not know about your product or service
- Reach new prospective customers that already have an interest in what you sell or do, but who do not know you
- Generate new business-to-business revenue through partnerships with other sponsors
- Create relationships with long term value
- Gain a network of customers and business partners
A sponsorship can help you become better known in the marketplace; expand your customer base; create a new niche for your business; build customer loyalty; become more connected with your community; and build a larger network of business contacts. All these things lead to increased revenue for your business.
Is the LPGA Amateur Golf Association the right sponsorship partner for you?
A National View: On April 16 2018, the EWGA was transitioned into a new organization, The LPGA Amateur Gold Association. The LPGA Amateur Golf Association Mission is connecting women to learn, play, and enjoy golf for business and for fun. Its Vision is enriching the lives of women through the game of golf.
The Association is headquartered in Daytona Beach, Florida. Jane Geddes is the President and has worked tirelessly with her team to transition EWGA into the new association, LPGA Amateur Golf Association.
