SECURE A SPONSOR TO REDUCE YOUR PLANNER COST

 

Who is a good sponsor prospect? …

Almost anyone, but especially a parent/PTA member who is also a business owner or manager. Good matches for sponsorship include: Banks/Credit Unions, Fast Food Chains, Car Dealers, Karate/Dance Schools, Contractors, Ice Cream Parlors, Restaurants, Radio Stations, Malls, Real Estate Firms, and Medical Professionals

 

Companies small and large support the goals of student planners and STEM education. If given the opportunity, most will commit funds for your school/district to invest in the STEM Student Planners™ in exchange for recognition through an advertisement displayed on the planner’s back cover or insert page. We can also custom design a front cover cooperating your school name/mascot with the sponsor’s identity.

 

Your planner consultant can guide you through the process …

Before scheduling a meeting with a prospective sponsor, secure a quote from a planner consultant by phoning 1-800-593-8312. When in front of a management-level decision maker, acknowledge your school’s/district’s commitment to use of the STEM Student Planner and its significance in promoting STEM education. Note its role in cultivating lifelong organizational skills and the fact a parent/guardian must sign the planner – required for all students – daily. The merchant must know the planner will be used.

 

Stress the advertising benefits to the prospective sponsor …

Because the planner is used daily by students, parents, and teachers, the sponsor’s message is delivered to the heart of the community (families with kids) consistently for the school year’s 40+ weeks. Sponsorship also strengthens the advertiser’s community image by supporting a publication designed to promote the advancement of society through science, technology, engineering, and math.

 

Preferred 100 or 50 Percent Approach …

Upon finalizing your planner order cost, request your prospective sponsor pay all or half in exchange for a back cover ad. Emphasize the unit (single planner) cost per family for the school year. You may find several sponsors and split the cost accordingly. Many businesses will see this as a unique chance to help your school/district and benefit by showcasing their products/services to a family market for the entire school year.
