Become a sponsor!
If you are interested in supporting the 2020 event in any way please feel free to complete the form below and we will be in touch!
Why do we need Corporate Sponsorship?
The purpose of Corporate Sponsorship of the event is, by ensuring that all operating costs involved in hosting the event are covered by sponsorships, to maximise the amounts gifted to local Charities and Community Groups. Any surplus over and above the running costs will also be distributed. Naturally, being a Rotary event, all Rotary members’ time is gifted free. Rotary takes nothing from sponsorship other than receipted expenses for the event – and every cent of every Dollar raised by the swimmers goes to charity.
2020 is the 3rd annual RotarySwimarathon and we are proud to say that, from the first 2 annual events, Rotary donated $32,400 to ten local Hibiscus Coast charities – and we will again be supporting a number of great local charities this year.
What does a sponsor get for their money?
We have 4 levels of sponsorship, offering increased levels of exposure within the event:
Community Sponsorship $250 - some opportunities still available
The Sponsor’s name will be announced over the PA system at every hourly session throughout the event. Their name and logo plus website link will feature on the RotarySwimarathon Facebook page and on the Generation Homes RotarySwimarathon website. Publicity in local press and online. Sponsors are invited to attend the presentation evening at Rotary House, on a date to be announced following the event.
Medal Sponsorship $450 - 5 opportunities; just 2 remaining for 2020
The above, plus the sponsor will be invited to present medals to the swim teams and be professionally photographed with them after they complete their swim session.
Lane Sponsor $750 - 7 opportunities; all taken for 2020
The above (other than medal presentations), plus the sponsor will be able to provide and display their own banner (up to 2m x 1m approx.) throughout the event. Lane Sponsors will also have their corporate identity clearly displayed on a 1m x 1m board throughout the event, at the end of the pool lane that they sponsor. Lane Sponsors will also be able to display their own banner at the presentation evening. Additionally, the Generation Homes RotarySwimarathon Facebook and Website pages will display a small advert for the company: before, during and after the event.
Event Naming Sponsor - taken for 2020 by Generation Homes
The above (other than the lane board), plus the Event Sponsor’s name and logo will appear on the corporate gifts given to every swimmer, and these will be used by the swimmers long after the event ends. This will be exclusive and no other business will feature on the corporate gifts. Event Sponsors have the opportunity to attend and start at least one of the swim sessions during the event, and to speak briefly and be photographed presenting cheques to one or more of the recipient charities at the presentation evening. Plus, the Generation Homes RotarySwimarathon Facebook and website pages will display a large advert for the company: before, during and after the event.
