TMP Wants to Build Partnerships
While Texas Music Partners strives to become one of central Texas’ best institutions for building creative thinkers, we want to build a partnership with each of our sponsors. TMP will advocate for you by letting our donors and web page viewers know you are a responsible and socially conscious business worthy of their consideration. Just as we need a donor base to accomplish our mission, we understand you need a customer base and if we work as a team, we can both succeed.
How Will Your Sponsorship Be Used?
Business donations to Texas Music Partners can benefit our mission in two ways:
- Directly, by investing in our mission.
- Direct donations (i.e. annually, quarterly, monthly)
- Matching gifts for our fundraising events
- Matching challenge for our fundraising events
- Indirectly, by investing in our fundraising campaigns to support our mission through monetary, or in-kind donations.
Every sponsor’s tax-deductible dollar we use, for fundraising purposes, has the opportunity to bring in an additional $2-$4 dollars in donations, so your sponsorship will have more impact than any other donor. Any sponsored donations that may be left over, from fundraising efforts, will go directly to our mission of helping central Texas students find a passion in music and the arts alongside technology so those passions can manifest into interesting careers, avocations, or hobbies related to music, the arts, and our next generation of creative thinkers and problem solvers, for a more advanced and productive future.
Texas Music Partners welcomes any assistance businesses may offer and an in-kind donation is appreciated as much as a monetary donation. If you have a product or service that may fit in well with a fundraiser or classroom situation and you would like to help out, feel free to contact us and let us know that you are available to assist. In-kind donations are tax deductible and will help promote your business.
Here are some examples of businesses and items that would do well as an in-kind donation:
- Refurbished Android tablets
- Lighting equipment
- Recording/Video studios
- Auction items
- Raffle items
- Gift cards
- And more
