What is the Towamencin Township Community Partnership Program? The Towamencin Township Community Partnership program provides area businesses a chance to positively market their company by supporting Towamencin Township special events. Many people call these sponsorships; however we look at them as partnerships. In 2009 the township will hold many special events throughout the year, many of which are free. In order for us to provide these popular events to the community we must find outside funding to help offset the increasing costs that these events incur. This is where your support comes in. We need you to help us meet our goal of $10,000 in Community Support. How Does This Benefit You? There is a great sense of pride and satisfaction that comes with supporting community events. One of the keys to a successful business is to build and keep relationships with current and potential customers. There is no better way to build this relationship than by supporting a community event. This expresses to the community that you are interested in their wellbeing and happiness. We offer many different ways that you can utilize your support at our special events. One of the best ways is by having a representative at our events. For more ways to utilize your support please view our sponsorship levels. Partnership Perks We are willing to work with each business individually on how you would like to be a partner. Whether you give $50 or $5000, every partnership is valuable to us. When you reach certain levels of partnership you will receive several perks for your generous donation. These include: *New for 2009* Special partnership luncheon at the end of the year for qualifying partners.
