BECOME A LOCAL BUSINESS SPONSOR FOR 2022
If you own or manage a local business, we want to partner with you! Eugene Darkroom Group (EDG) is seeking local business sponsors to help support the darkroom. As a thanks for your support, sponsors will have their business name & logo displayed on our website and newsletters for the calendar year of 2022. Whatever method of sponsorship you choose, your donation directly supports our mission to make the medium accessible to our community.
THERE ARE SEVERAL WAYS TO BECOME A SPONSOR:
MAKE A GENERAL DONATION VIA CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD OF $50+.
General donations from sponsors enable us to provide scholarships and supplies for those enrolled in classes, keep chemistry and supplies stocked, and support our growing operational costs and team in keeping film alive. This is the easiest and most flexible way to sponsor us!
DONATE $50+ IN GIFT CARDS OR GOODS FROM YOUR BUSINESS
Does your business sell photo or art supplies? General goods? Food or drink? In addition to photo related supplies, we also need goods like soap and paper towels to keep our space functional. We also host many public events and love to provide food and drink from local businesses!
PROVIDE EXCLUSIVE DISCOUNTS FOR EDG MEMBERS
Are you a business that provides materials or services specific for or related to film photography or art? Consider offering a small discount to our members when they visit your business as customers - similar to how one would offer a student discount. 5%, 10%, whatever fits your budget.
If you have trouble accessing the links, we can send an email version at your request.
