Opportunities – Naming Rights and Sponsorships:

posted Apr 4, 2016, 5:42 AM by Ryan Palmer
Would you or your business/place of work be interested in having some part of the new high school named after your organization?  Would you like to donate some amount of money in order to see your name listed as a contributor to the project?
The M.S.A.D. No. 75 School Board recently held two workshops to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of such opportunities.  The Board’s Policy Committee will take these conversations and turn them into a Board policy to govern these practices.  The Board also recently voted to create a new sub-committee, Fundraising, which would function along with the existing six sub-committees, to work out the logistics for Naming Rights and Sponsorships.
Naming rights (such as XYZ Auditorium) will be limited to areas generally accessed by the public, such as athletic fields, gym, auditorium, and perhaps a few other selected areas.  The intent of the Board regarding sponsorships is to have various levels available so as to allow the largest number of interested parties to participate.  Sponsorship (such as plaques or stones) will be expected to reflect the quality of the building and to be consistent with its design.
This is an invitation to seek volunteers who would like to serve on the Fundraising Committee.
Interested parties should send a letter (by email to brillantb@link75.org) or the input box on the District’s website (construction.link75.org).
Please respond to the following:
1.         Are you interested in serving on the Naming Rights or Sponsorship aspect of this committee?  _______________
2.         Why are you interested in serving?
3.         What experience, skills or interest do you have that will help the sub-committee(s)?
4.         Are you prepared to commit to the time required?
5.         Please provide your name and contact information.
Parties interested in the Fundraising sub-committees now being established must submit their letters of interest by Friday, April 22, 2016.
Letters of interest should be sent to:
