Many players choose not to fundraise and prefer to just pay their player fees; however, many others choose to participate in fundraisers to reduce their player fees. In addition to individual teams running their own individual team scale fundraisers, Legacy provides a Banner Sponsorship program for Legacy Baseball and Fastpitch players.
Players sell businesses the opportunity to have their logo placed on one team banner or on all of the teams’ banners. This is a win-win for the business and player. The business gains immeasurable exposure with thousands of families participating and passing through Legacy. The banners are hung at each team’s games which are played locally and regionally. For the player, 100% of the sponsorship sales are scholarshipped towards their player fees. Many players only pay their initial deposit out of pocket!
The directions below on the banner sponsorship form must be followed completely or the funds may not make it and be credited to your account without additional legwork.
· Circle Sponsorship level
· Fill out business information
· Email the logo (DO NOT SEND IN A BUSINESS CARD)
· Write “attn: Joey Thorington” on the envelope
· Complete the Player and Team area before you send it to a business (they do not always complete that portion)
Many businesses use monies from their advertising budgets and are not concerned if their donation is made out to a non-profit or standard business. With a standard business sponsorship, the money goes immediately into your player's account and the business may use a credit card or check. In this instance, use the "Regular Business Sponsorship Form" below.
If the business/person specifically requests a non-profit sponsorship donation, you may use the LEAD foundation. Be advised, the credit takes longer to get through the different channels and be scholarshipped towards fees. In that instance, use the "Non-profit form" below. The business/person may not use a credit card for a non-profit sponsorship. Please use the "Regular Business Sponsorship Form" if a business/person does not specifically request their donation be non-profit.
