A sponsorship is a relationship between a club and a company where the club is provided with valuable resources while sponsors benefit by promoting or advertising their goods and services. Finding sponsorship is not easy and it does require the commitment to both seeking out partnerships and, once those partnerships have been made, fulfilling your end of the agreement. Because your club is under the umbrella of UREC and JMU, there are a number of factors that you must consider and rules that you must abide by in order to create successful partnerships. Please see the Sport Club Sponsorship Guide for guidelines, recommendations and tips and meet with the Assistant Director for Sport Clubs and Youth Programs to begin your efforts.
Your club may set up an account with The JMU Foundation to accept tax-deductible donations from club sport alumni, parents, employees and friends. This money can be used to offset your clubs' annual expenses and even create an endowment or scholarship fund. Please see the Sport Club Development Guide for guidelines, recommendations and tips and meet with the Assistant Director for Sport Clubs and Youth Programs to begin your efforts.
Kids Night Out
Kid’s Night out is an opportunity for children ages 6-12 to spend the evening at UREC climbing the wall, swimming and playing different games and activities. Each KNO is supervised by a different Sport Club or Student Organization—a great opportunity to impact the lives of community youth and also an opportunity to fund raise for your club! Each club will need to have up to 10 members participate the evening of Kids Night Out—there should also be a mix of both males/females available (can be from other clubs) at least for the swimming activity that evening. This is so that we may properly supervise the children while in the pool area. Each semester the Graduate Assistant for Sport Clubs & Youth Programs will email the 41 Club Executive Officers with the dates for KNO—this is a first come, first serve basis, so look out for the emails! Contact the Coordinator of Informal Recreation and Youth Programs if you would like more information!
More projects coming soon.
