Firstly, you are not expected to close the deal with a potential sponsors. Ideally you, or one of your PTA team, would have a chat with the local businesses you have identified and share our 60 second video explanation with them. If they are interested then you simply pass their details to the Classlist advertising team who will take it from there.
N.B. Businesses can run sponsorship campaigns right across the Classlist network of over 1600 schools, not just at your school. Your PTA will get 50% of the revenue regardless of where the sponsor chooses to advertise.
We are really excited about giving your school another way to raise funds in an easy way. We have found that companies also welcome the opportunity to help their local community. It’s really about creating partnerships from which everyone benefits. Ceri Richardson, Head of Business Development at Brooklands Hotel commented: “We are thrilled to play a part in fundraising for St George’s College. Classlist has enabled us to raise the profile of Brooklands Hotel within the parent community at St George’s and we look forward to continuing a successful partnership.”
