SPONSORSHIPs, Contributions & Donations
As a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, partnering with the Black Women in Sport Foundation (BWSF) is not only smart, it is one of the best ways that you can invest your dollars and your support to help us maximize our work with the youth and young adults who benefit from their participation in BWSF programs. Whether it’s an after-school, summer, or community program, a leadership event, or inclusion in an online or printed piece, BWSF’s activities, materials, and attire provide exposure and positioning opportunities for your company or organization. And your support ultimately leads to the same outcome – helping BWSF to leverage its resources to re-direct and change lives.
Sponsorship opportunities range from $500 to $5000 with three tiers – Elite; Pro; Specialist – and include a menu of selections that can include:
- Company/organization’s logo printed on BWSF t-shirt or other apparel
- Inclusion of company/organization’s name and/or logo on materials for specific events
- Logo on BWSF website with link to company/organization’s website
- Display of logo on banner for display during promoted after-school and summer activities
- Production and distribution of promotional items
- Opportunity to speak at event or activity
- Ad or similar promotion in one or more of BWSF’s newsletters
Contact Tina Sloan Green at BWSF and we’ll work to develop a package that meets your interests and needs, while you support those in the community who often need it the most – underserved children, youth and young adults.
Contributions & Donations
BWSF is proud to be a donor choice agency of the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey. Designating BWSF as your agency of choice is as simple as supplying our code number, 15438 or agency name: Black Women in Sport Foundation and the amount of your gift or pledge.
Your tax-deductible contribution may be made via check or money order. Donors giving a single, direct donation of $75 or more will receive a BWSF t-shirt. You can mail your contribution to: P.O. Box 2610 Philadelphia, PA 19130, Attn: Tina Sloan Green.
Less than seven percent of the funds raised through contributions and donations are used for administrative and fundraising expenses; that means more of your donation is at work in direct services to program participants.
Surplus items. Product returns in good condition. Discontinued styles. Donations of new or lightly used sport equipment (that meets safety standards) are welcomed from manufacturers, retailers, and private donors and individuals. This is another way to help ensure that every BWSF participant has the equipment or tools needed to take full advantage of all that our programs offer. Contact our office to discuss the items you would like to donate and the best way for us to receive them.
