WHAT ARE MY RESPONSIBILITIES AS A SPONSOR?
As a Food & Drink Week sponsor, please provide the following:

  • A high resolution logo for your business. Due to Hungry in Reno on or before April 1, 2022.
  • Complete payment for your sponsorship on or before April 1, 2022 (unless otherwise arranged with Hungry in Reno).
  • A gift card or basket to be raffled off at the finale event. Item due to Hungry in Reno on or before May 1, 2022.
  • While it’s not mandatory, we’d love for you to promote the event by hanging a poster or providing flyers at your business and/or sharing the event via your social media and/or e-mail.
  • If you are a Presenting, Platinum or Gold Sponsor, I will be in contact with you after June 1, 2022 to discuss your digital advertisement.

IS MY SPONSORSHIP TAX DEDUCTIBLE?
While this is not a charity event but a community event with a purpose to support and celebrate our local food & drink establishments, a portion of the net income from this event will be split between the three 2022 Hungry Gives Back recipients, any direct Food & Drink Week sponsorships should be considered a business expense and, as such, may be tax-deductible. However, we are not tax professionals and would encourage you to contact a tax professional if you have any questions about this topic. Enter Shameless Sponsor Plug — if you are in the market for a CPA, we’d love for you to consider ours: Berge & Company CPA.

Those companies looking to directly donate to a non-profit (and potentially receive a charitable contribution tax deduction) are encouraged to donate directly to one or more of the 2022 Hungry Gives Back recipients.

While direct sponsorship is important to the success of the food & drink weeks, we love our charities and would be happy for you to do this in lieu of a sponsorship! Any business that chooses to donate to one or more of the 2022 Hungry Gives Back recipients in the amount of either the gold ($1,000) or silver ($500) sponsorship level in lieu of a direct sponsorship will receive digital, print and media recognition as that level of sponsor for the event. To receive this recognition, proof of donation should be sent to Cheree Boteler at hungryinreno@gmail.com.

*Net proceeds = remainder of funds after expenses
