Sponsorship Opportunities – South Sound YMCA

Sponsorship Opportunities

Invest in our community

Sponsorship opportunities are available for a variety of programs and events through your South Sound YMCA. Sponsorships underwrite the costs of fundraising and community events in order to direct event revenue to the area of most need and keep participation fees accessible. Program sponsorships offer companies a way to highlight their support of community activities and raise money for our scholarship funds.

Sponsorship opportunities start at $500 and include varying levels of sponsor recognition. Below are summaries of our current opportunities.

For information on any of these opportunities, please contact Sarah Clinton.

SUPPORT OUR PROGRAMS & EVENTS SPONSORSHIPS

ANNUAL DINNER & AUCTION

In September, we host our largest fundraising event of the year. This casual, fun event brings together 200+ community leaders in support of our work together in the community. In addition to a silent and live auction, there are games, raffles and a prize for best costume. We’re not the fanciest event in town…but we’re definitely the most FUN!

ANNUAL YMCA SPRING RUN & STATE AGENCY CHALLENGE

Kick-off Washington State Employee Wellness Month by participating in our Spring Run & State Agency Challenge! State and local employees from 50 agencies join individuals from around our region in the state’s only Governor endorsed running event. With 1,000 – 1,200 participating annually, the Spring Run is one of the most popular running events in Thurston County.

YOUTH SPORTS / SUMMER DAY CAMP

The South Sound Y is the largest provider of youth sports and summer day camp in our region! As a sponsor of these programs, your company logo will be emblazoned on shirts worn by thousands of youth each year.
