SPONSORSHIP PACKAGE

INFORMATION

Warm greetings from the Los Angeles Leather Pride 2018 Sponsorship Committee. We hope you will consider joining us as a sponsor of our full week of events during LA Leather Pride in 2018. And if you’re a prior sponsor, thank you in advance for your interest in continued sponsorship!

LA Leather Pride 2018 is a grassroots community organized festival, not a commercial entity.   We depend upon the support of our Sponsors to be able to defray the costs of putting on the many events of LA Leather Pride week so that in the end we can make meaningful contributions to our Charity Partners.  Our past charity partners have included ONE Archives Foundation (the independent community partner of ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives at the USC Libraries), the Tom of Finland Foundation, SAGE USA, SMUG (Sexual Minorities Uganda), Project Angel Food, and the Sharon St. Cyr Fund, Inc.

This year we continue our outreach to you through three primary programs:

  • Elite Level Event/ Program Sponsorships
  • Corporate/ Business Level Sponsorships
  • Individual and Community Partner Sponsorships

Each program has a detailed level of donation opportunities and benefits tailored to your needs and resources.  The LALC and LA Leather Pride 2018 production team deeply appreciate all gifts no matter how small and are eager to work with you and your organization to reach our mutual goals.
We could not do this without your generous support.

PLEASE NOTE: Feeder Contests are produced by Community Partner member organizations independent of LALC and LALC does not always have full control over the advertising and promotional materials used by such producers.  LALC will make a concerted effort to insure that Title Sponsor/ Presenting Sponsor name and logo are included in all materials. Feeder Contests for LA Leather Pride 2018 have already commenced, hence, it is in the best interest of the Title and Presenting Sponsors to enter into sponsorship agreements with LALC as soon as possible to receive the full benefit of a year of publicity.

IMPORTANT DETAILS ABOUT THE LALP 2018 PROGRAM AND YOUR SPONSORSHIP!

Your sponsorship is vital to the success of Leather Pride week and as such, we offer great benefits, one of which is advertising your business on our website, mobile app, and in our printed Leather Pride Program and Guide.

Because of the production deadlines for our printed guide, we must ask that all sponsorship commitments be in place prior to our mid-February 2018 cut-off.  Plus, the sooner you commit, the sooner we can start displaying your logo or ad on our website and mobile app - well before the printed guide comes out.

Please contact David Cosio ([email protected]), Jon Wright ([email protected]), or John Roads ([email protected]) for more information.
