Corporate Support: Sponsoring Festival
Each year Iowa Public Television sets aside 16 days in March to ask Iowans for their support of their statewide public television network. Festival raises about one-fourth of the money needed to purchase and produce programs seen on IPTV. The commitments made by corporations and foundations for Festival are used to purchase the special programs that bring new viewers to IPTV and entice them to call, become a member of Friends of IPTV and pledge their support.
IPTV offers businesses corporate sponsorship during the 16 days of Festival. Organizations that sponsor an evening receive the following:
- The on-air talent will thank you for your partnership throughout the evening, and acknowledge the volunteers you have provided.
- Your company logo will be displayed on the Festival set so it will be visible to the viewers at home throughout the evening.
- You may bring up to 40 volunteers to answer the phones. These volunteers may showcase your logo by wearing company shirts/attire.
- You will be listed as a funder in 12 issues of Advance, the program guide mailed monthly to the more than 65,000 households who support Friends of IPTV plus Iowa Businesses.
The cost to invest in FESTIVAL is as follows:
- One Evening Exclusive Sponsorship - $5,000
- One Eventing Shared Sponsorship - $3,000
- One Weekend Afternoon - $1,750
