Sponsorship of Historical Douglas County, Inc. (HDC) is a way of showing your support for preserving the rich history of our Douglas County area and educating the public about it. Our intent is that a sponsorship becomes a two-way relationship that benefits your business as well as HDC. HDC believes that we provide you the opportunity to have a much wider exposure to portions of the general public that your business may not have today. Wider exposure to potential clients or customers should translate into increased dollars for your business as well as provide a significant value of goodwill to the public.
Historic Douglas County, Inc. has multiple ranges of sponsorships. You can see from the pyramid on the right how we focus the funds from your type of sponsorship. We believe that our sponsorship levels provide good value for our sponsors at every level. Below is a table providing a brief itemization of what sponsors receive for the respective levels of sponsorship participation.
HDC encourages and appreciates your consideration of sponsorship. Although our “official” sponsorship months are June and July, we receive sponsorships throughout the year. If you decide to sponsor HDC after our annual calendar is released (early August each year), we include your advertisement in the following calendar year. Your logo and website link will immediately be put on the HDC website and you will be identified as an HDC sponsor at all the public events in which HDC participates.
