Sponsorships are very different than standard donations because they are essentially business deals, with mutual benefits for both nonprofit and for-profit. Often times, the non-profit asking for support can feel bashful about the ask but we're here to abolish that attitude. While the corporate sponsor contributes to an organization to help further its mission (usually monetarily), the real benefit to the sponsor is that the nonprofit promotes the sponsoring corporation’s connection to its cause, offering positive publicity and a boosted reputation. Both nonprofit and for-profit acquire access to the supporters and customers of each respective company, expanding their audiences. And, luckily for nonprofits, for the sponsorship to be legal, the benefits to the sponsoring corporation cannot outweigh the benefits to the tax-exempt nonprofit.

There’s only one thing better than doing a good deed, and that’s getting paid for it. We at FootSteps Marketing are committed to building and maintaining our corporate culture and our mountain community. That being said, we know all too well the ever-increasing cost of living here in the Roaring Fork Valley and have decided to offer our team the chance to actively be a part of building and maintaining both. We took our team to volunteer as a build-crew for our local Habitat for Humanity. Not only will this day out of the office get us out of the office, away from our computers, into our community, but it also provides our team with a chance to see our co-workers and company in a new light.
