Becoming a Sponsor in Three Steps
The following represents the basic process for becoming an OBAP Sponsor. Depending on the type of event or program you wish to support, there may be more steps to complete the process. In all cases, our goal is to make supporting OBAP an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
1. Making Initial Contact:
Whether you're a new sponsor or partnered with OBAP in the past, the first step to establishing a new sponsorship is to meet with our team virtually or in person. During this initial meeting, we work to understand your goals and objectives as a sponsor. We will ask questions about why you felt connected to OBAP and its mission and why now is the time for you to become a sponsor. Our goal is the help identify a strategy that allows you to support OBAP in a way that aligns with your organization's outreach efforts.
Prior to your first meeting with OBAP, you'll want to review our Donor Prospectus, Corporate Sponsorship Guide, and Annual Report. These documents will give you key information regarding what programs OBAP administers in order to accomplish its mission, as well as the sponsorship opportunities available.
When you're ready, please complete our sponsorship inquiry form if you haven't already reached out to our marketing and membership team. This will allow us to set up an initial meeting.
2. Review and Sign Sponsorship Agreement
After your initial meeting, our team will design a sponsorship strategy based on the discussion and information gathered. Our team will follow up to present our recommendations and aim to finalize the details of your sponsorship. This may involve some discussion to ensure we get it right. Once we've collaboratively identified the best course of action and specifics of the sponsorship, our team will begin drafting a formal sponsorship agreement. In order to present this agreement for your review, first, we will need you to complete our Sponsorship Initial Setup form. Once the agreement draft is ready for your review, we will send it to you via DocuSign for your signature. A copy of the fully executed document will be emailed to you once our Chair countersigns. Unless other arrangements are made, any required donation is usually due within five days of signing the agreement. Your donation can be made by visiting our donation page.
3. Getting Started as a Sponsor
Once we have a signed agreement, our team will start various processes depending on the applicable type of program or event. If needed, our marketing team will reach out with details about getting logo files or other media assets.
