Welcome Prospective Sponsors!
aHAND4 ® Life! welcomes our prospective Sponsors from around the country!
Sponsors help us "extend our reach" in accomplish our Mission according to our Vision - increase our Membership and Client-base, and deliver our charitable and value-added services and goods ("Things!"), etc.*
For them, we bring Sponsors a little recognition, and the large knowledge they have helped us do something truly significantly to help people in a meaningful way who are truly disadvantaged. **
Sponsors are distinct from Members, Partners, Supporters or Volunteers. Sponsors and Volunteers have only a minimal Agreement governing their relationship with the Organization, for Sponsorship or Volunteering. Members have a fuller Membership Agreement governing their relationship and Partners have a slightly larger "Partnership Agreement" governing their relationship. Supporters have no Agreement or "relationship" at all with the Organization, and only offer cash or goods donation "support" at an "arms length". *
If you or your organization or an Organization you know would likely benefit from a formal Sponsorship relationship with our Organization, please send a brief note of interest and description of the potential opportunity(s), and let's discuss!
We require only a simple one-page "Sponsorship Letter Agreement", to assure our mutual benefit and protection - so "expectations" are aligned. We address: Ethics, Indemnification, Rights Offered, Payment(s) and Termination - typical in a US Letter Agreement/ Sponsorship. Not to worry, we mainly wish your donation and the right to use your Logo on our T-shirts!
