Adding Packages: Sponsorship

Sponsorship Packages are used to indicate that a business or individual is Sponsoring your event in some way. These can be monetary Sponsorships, in-kind Sponsorships, or even just VIP tables that you want to highlight. As with other Packages, Sponsorship Packages are added in your View/Edit Packages screen. Below, we cover creating a sponsorship Package.

  1. From the Project Home, click the View/Edit Packages link under the Packages header.
  2. Click the Add button in the toolbar.
  3. Select the Sponsorship radio button.
  4. Fill in basic information:

    • Package Number - You can enter a number yourself, or let the software auto-assign a number. Tip: Use the smaller box to the right to add a letter.
    • Package Name - The name of the Sponsorship. This will display on your Project Website if you have one.
    • Class - Optional. Useful if you want to group Packages in a certain way.
    • Section - Optional. Recommended for certain post event reports.
  5. Enter in miscellaneous information:

    • Show in Catalog - This is a flag that your Catalog uses to determine if the Package should be included.
    • Addendum - If you have already created the Catalog, you can mark this Package as an Addendum to the Catalog
    • Sponsorship Level - This field controls the order that Sponsors display on the Project Website, as well as how frequently they appear on the Online Bidding site. Lower numbers (typically used for a higher value sponsorship) will be displayed above higher level numbers. Also used to determine the order Sponsors appear on your Display Boards.
    • Admissions Included -  If applicable, this number determines how many tickets for guests come with this Sponsorship.
    • Maximum Online Sales - Determines how many of this Package can be sold on the Project Website (does not account for manually added Sales).
  6. Enter numerical Values:

    • Value Type - Defaults to Estimable, but can be customized by Customizing your Picklists.
    • Value - This is the fair market value for the Package.
    • Tax Rate - A percentage increase to the Price of the Package.
    • Price - The cost to the Supporter of the Package.
  7. If applicable, enter any Notes, Description, or Restrictions.

Click Save to save your new Sponsorship Package, or Save and Add New to add another.
