Becoming a GRACE Gala Sponsor is more than a logo on a sign; it is a vital partnership that showcases a desire to see your community thrive.

Individuals, families, local business, corporations and civic groups have the opportunity to highlight their support as Sponsors with an in-kind donation or monetary Sponsorship.

In-kind Sponsorship

All in-kind donations strengthen our Silent, Big Board and Live Auctions, which generate a great deal of funds the night of the Gala to support GRACE programs. Regardless of Gala attendance, everyone can view and place bids on the Silent Auction items prior to the event.

In-kind Sponsorships grant a business the opportunity to offer a product or service that is unique to their identity on behalf of their brand.

However, you don’t have to be a business to donate on behalf of your family or group. Past gifts have included airline miles, vacation stays and spa packages just to name a few.

Our Sponsorship packet details the community exposure in-kind donors receive before, during and after their participation at the GRACE Gala. Download it here.

Monetary Sponsorship

Monetary Sponsors present a tax-deductible financial gift to fund the event itself so that 100% of the evening’s proceeds fund GRACE programs. These types of supporters are significant allies to GRACE by investing their company’s resources to advance the GRACE mission.

Sponsors receive ample exposure and access to nearly 1,000 GRACE Gala guests, over 250 VIP party guests and thousands of GRACE supporters. Patronage is encouraged to companies that share a kindred desire to see families flourish, and the networking opportunities are invaluable.

Top level Sponsors have the option to place ads in the Gala program and avail themselves to express VIP registration, exclusive recognition, and other VIP ‘perks’.  Featured Sponsorships bring added value, with distinctive highlights during peak elements of the program.

Sponsors are encouraged to promote their participation in the GRACE Gala by including verbiage and Gala emblem on their website and other marketing materials as an official GRACE Gala Sponsor.
