Some potential sources of funding and sponsorship that most students never consider:
- Chamber of Commerce
- Local businesses—car dealerships, manufacturing, health and fitness clubs, grocery stores, restaurants
- Professionals– attorneys, physicians, dentists, accountants
- Firefighters, police fraternal organizations
These individuals and organizations typically don’t receive many requests for sponsorship so you chances of a favorable response are better than average. Try to find a personal connection in your local community. When you write the letter, be enthusiastic, sincere, genuine. Feel free to send to me for review.
