High School Sponsorships


Recommended Posts

This summer, I've been working hard to try and collect sponsors for our upcoming bass fishing season. But I need some advice here, how would you all go about approaching a sponsor? All help will be gladly appreciated. Thanks.

This is the right Forum and there are already many responses to your question. Use our search function or simply go back through the pages in this section and you will find what you are looking for. The simple answer is to contact local business owners that have some connection with your school. These companies DO NOT need to be fishing related. Ask all of the parents to get involved with their social network and I'm sure they can find a few of their friends that might be interested in lending a helping hand.

I am the president of my high school team and I am over all of our sponsorships. Here's a few tips that helped me out:

Ask any local businesses. Doesn't matter what they sell or what service. Most people (at least around here) love supporting their local schools (especially alumni). 

Write up a pretty letter that outlines your team, your accomplishments, and what they will get out of it. 

Send out team members. Create a small army of team members to approach local businesses and even people. Some members may know or have connections with different people. 

Create a diagram or some way of showing people what they are gonna get out of it. If you have jerseys then tell people what size logo will go on your jerseys or logo size on a banner depending on what size of sponsorship.

At my school we have to have invoices to get money that our sponsors gave us so maybe ask for gas cards from some people because most gas stations won't let you pay by invoice. 

I am sure I am missing something but these tips seem to be the most helpful for me and brought me most of my success. If you have any questions feel free to message me on here. :D
