Sponsoring Albany Rowing

Sponsorship Appeal

Thank you to all those who sponsored ARC's rowing programs in 2014 and prior years. ARC is grateful to all its members, sponsors, and supporters for their financial support of the club, without which we would not be able to provide quality rowing programs for our members. We hope we can count on your support again in 2015.

Information for Sponsors

Corporate Sponsors: As a business or corporation, your contribution to the Albany Rowing Center's fundraising efforts helps support our ability to maintain and upgrade equipment and keep our competitive edge as we improve our programs for both juniors and adults. In addition to supporting us, your sponsorship benefits your business by giving you year-long visibility throughout the Capital District and beyond. As our junior and masters rowing teams travel to regattas throughout the northeast, nationally and internationally, your name and logo travel with them on our special events banner and t-shirts. The banner will also be on display at other events such as Learn to Row Day at the Corning Preserve and our fundraising events in Albany.

Individual Donors and Supporters: Individuals who donate cash, equipment or in-kind services provide essential support to our club, and are recognized along with corporate sponsors at our special events and in our promotional material. We appreciate your support and are reminded of it each time we row behind someone wearing an event t-shirt with your name on it.

Sponsorship Levels and Benefits: This year we are offering multiple event sponsorship opportunities with differing levels of benefit available to you and your company. Our Sponsors Benefits Table describes the benefits of your participation in the following sponsor categories:

Tax Considerations: Part or all of your contribution may be tax deductible under Section 501 of the federal Internal Revenue Code. The amount that is deductible is limited to the excess of any money contributed over the fair market value of goods or services provided by ARC in recognition of your sponsorship. As part of your sponsorship package, ARC will provide you with a good faith estimate of the value of any goods or services. (see IRS Publication 557)
