Approximately 10,000 Veterans are laid to rest at Ft. Mitchell National Cemetery, and we’ve never been able to place a wreath on every headstone. While a great number of wreaths are sponsored by the families and friends of those laid to rest at Ft. Mitchell, we rely heavily on the patriotism and generosity of corporate sponsors. We ensure all our business and organizational partners are recognized for their efforts. Wreaths Across America is a non-profit, 501c3 organization, so your wreath sponsorships are also tax deductible.
We are asking for sponsorships in one of five categories:
- Cemetery Sponsor: $100,000.00 sponsorship (ALL 10,000 graves covered by wreaths). Sponsorship includes your organization as the wreath sponsor for the event on the event flier, a write up about your organization in the ceremony pamphlet, and your logo and name on the banners supporting the sections of headstones throughout the cemetery. Additionally, if your organization would like to run a section (ie hand out wreaths and ensure grave-specific requests are honored), you may do that as well. Finally, a representative from your organization will be placed on the agenda as a guest speaker during the ceremony.
- Platinum Sponsor: Minimum $10,000.00 sponsorship (1,000 wreaths). Sponsorship includes a large logo on the event flier, mention in the ceremony pamphlet and your logo and name on the banner supporting one of the sections of headstones to be covered by your wreaths. Additionally, if an organization would like to sponsor a particular section, we would allow people from your organization to run that section as your own, passing out wreaths to the visitors/guests, and ensuring those with grave-specific requests are taken care of.
- Gold Sponsor: Minimum $5,000.00 sponsorship (500 wreaths). Sponsorship includes a medium logo on the event flier, mention in the ceremony pamphlet, and your logo and name on the banner supporting one of the sections of headstones to be covered by wreaths.
- Silver Sponsor: Minimum $1,500.00 sponsorship (150 wreaths). Sponsorship includes a small logo on the event flier, mention in the ceremony pamphlet, and your name on the banner supporting one of the sections of headstones to be covered by wreaths.
- Bronze Sponsor: Minimum of $500.00 sponsorship (50 wreaths). Sponsorship includes your company’s name on the event flier, and mention in the ceremony pamphlet.
You must use the Group ID # AL0007 and Location # ALFMNF for credit as a sponsor.
