At Your Events Solution , we consider lending a hand to our local community groups, charities and fund-raisers as a commitment to the support we receive in return. Like most businesses in our industry, sponsorship and donations are made 'In Kind' based on retail value (subject to availability) for up to 50% of the total hire cost. It is our policy that we do not make cash contributions.
We are occasionally asked for a type of sponsorship which we cannot provide, however our extensive industry experience may identify some other way we can assist you that may well be more beneficial because we like to help where we can. Due of the large number of requests we receive, unfortunately we cannot enter into negotiations regarding the sponsorship grants once they are made. Sometimes the demand for our equipment is so high we may not be able to help, so please ensure you contact us well ahead of the event.
Our sponsorship funding is set annually during our annual budget process, and divided into financial quarters. This allows us to respond promptly to requests.
To be considered for sponsorship you will need to complete our on-line application form and forward it to the Kennards Events office closest to you. Each application period has its own deadline and these deadlines are set out below. A clear, concise and specific application will increase your chances of favourable consideration.
Under our quality program we monitor all events that we service, so our staff will monitor any events relating to your sponsorship. The reasons for this are to ensure we provide high quality goods and services to you, and also to monitor the implementation of our agreement. Please note that any application for sponsorship that does not meet the above criteria may not be considered.
Requests for sponsorship are considered as follows:
Event with a projected sponsorship value of under $500.00
Event with a projected sponsorship value greater than $500.00
In some cases, on-going large event sponsorship may reduce funds available for other programs or even preclude additional sponsorship for a period.
