  • A high resolution logo for your business. Due to Hungry in Reno on or before May 1, 2021.

  • If you are a Platinum or Gold Sponsor, I will be in contact with you after June 1, 2021 to discuss your digital advertisement.

IS MY SPONSORSHIP TAX DEDUCTIBLE?
While 100% of the net income from this event will be split between the three 2020-21 Hungry Gives Back recipients (to be named in July,2020), any direct Reno Restaurant 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 of the three Hungry Gives Back non-profits (to be named in July, 2020).

While direct sponsorship is important to the success of Reno Restaurant Week, 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 2020-21 Hungry Gives Back non-profits (to be named in July, 2020) 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.
