Benefits for Alumni Relations
There are several benefits of sponsorship to an alumni relations team:

  • It signifies your commitment to your alumni leaders so unselfishly working to support the school;
  • It allows visible recognition for that support while simultaneously providing access to the Workshop for several chapter leaders (sponsorships include complimentary registrations);
  • It permits alumni relations to offer a perk or reward to hard working alumni volunteers;
  • It may also allow alumni relations to have access to a valuable carrot to incent future leaders during recruiting;
  • It offers a media opportunity for use in newsletters, online posts, in social media and in the alumni magazine enabling global recognition for the regional event;
  • It offers actionable localized training, infrastructure, support and access for ALL your club and chapter leaders;
  • It will energize your volunteers beyond their existing amazing level of activity to make things happen;
  • You win amazing goodwill with your volunteers to be banked for future need!
  • Never forget, just because someone is a volunteer for another club, does not mean they are not also an alumna/alumnus of yours – or are married to one!  This is a great recruiting tool!
  • From a development perspective, research has shown that alumni that participate in actively run, locally organized clubs are twice as likely to donate to the university
    • They are 11 times more likely to donate $10,000 or more!!

Benefits for Clubs and Chapters
There are several benefits of sponsorship to local clubs and chapters:

  • It signifies your commitment to supporting your fellow club and chapter leadership - including the extended board – with tools, training and infrastructure to get their job done.
  • It is a demonstration to your alumni base that you are committed to their programming and support.
  • It allows visible recognition for that support throughout the entire local community of alumni groups while simultaneously providing access to the workshop for several chapter leaders (sponsorships include complimentary registrations).
  • It’s an opportunity to offer participation as either a reward to hard working volunteers, or as an incentive when recruiting the next slate of officers.
  • It is an opportunity to promote important upcoming events (like golf tournaments, speaker events, etc.) where you need more attendees to the people that make things happen in other clubs locally.
  • Never forget, just because someone is a volunteer for one club, does not mean they are not also an alumna/alumnus of yours – or are married to one!  This is a great recruiting tool!
  • Lastly, your support helps ensure this kind of programming - that helps your team and lifts up the entire subculture of volunteer leaders - will continue into the next year.
