Sponsors are companies or organizations who believe in the work of Forward Kentucky and want to support it monetarily. And just as Patrons get certain benefits for their support, Sponsors get certain benefits for helping us do the work.
There are four levels of sponsorship, based on how much money you wish to donate. Each level is worth a certain number of points.
|Sponsorship Type||Monetary Donation||Points Available|
|Contributor||$100 – $299||200 points|
|Benefactor||$300 – $499||400 points|
|Champion||$500 – $999||600 points|
|Underwriter||$1,000 and beyond||800 points|
All sponsors get listed on our Sponsors page with your name, your logo, and links to your site and social media channels.
In addition, sponsors can use the points listed above to mix-and-match from the following recognition types:
- Recognition block at the end of a story on the site – 50 points
- Podcast spot (30-second) – 50 points
- Podcast spot (60-second) – 100 points
- “Sponsor of the Week” block on front page of the site for a week – 400 points
Remember, Forward Kentucky is not a non-profit, so these are not charitable donations. They are, essentially, a monetary donation in return for a certain amount of recognition (i.e., advertising). Of course, a sponsor can give money to the work and choose to remain anonymous, if they choose.
