Sponsorship Opportunities with the Wharton Club of New Jersey:

The Wharton Club of NJ is proud to announce the launch of its Corporate Sponsorship program. The Club is seeking annual sponsors at one of three levels - Silver, Gold and Platinum. The sponsorship program will provide funding to the Club to be used to increase member benefits such as:

* Reducing the cost of events to members
* Helping to cover Club operating costs
* Expanding our options to provide high quality speakers/programs for our events
* Enhancing Club services through use of technology to deliver content directly to members (e.g. webinars, podcasts)
* And, more…

 

Why become a WCNJ Sponsor?

The obvious benefit to sponsors will be association with, and access to, Club members, who by their professional and personal achievements and endeavors, are significant centers of influence in the business community. In addition, sponsors have access to WCNJ members and their networks of colleagues as a potential pool of highly educated job candidates.

 

Three levels of annual sponsorship are available:

*Silver - $3,500 per year

  • Logo/link on Club website with other Silver sponsors

While an organization maintains/renews its sponsorship with WCNJ, no other entity in the same industry sector shall be an annual sponsor of WCNJ.

 

What types of organizations should consider sponsoring the WCNJ?

Annual sponsorships will be exclusive by industry sector or sub-sector; unless a sponsor consents, no competing company will also be an annual sponsor at the same time. While any company is free to sign up as a sponsor, we are primarily targeting professional, financial and business services firms (accounting, law, consulting, banks, insurance agencies/brokers, real estate firms, payroll processing, etc.) that would consider our alumni audience an ideal target market.
As a Club member will I be directly solicited by sponsors?

Clearly we must provide some level of advertising benefit in order to attract sponsors. However, the Board of Directors has put a great deal of thought into this – and our sensitivity around solicitation. Rest assured that there will be no blatant selling activities at Club events, nor will the Club’s membership or mailing list be provided to any sponsor. And, of course, the Club will only accept reputable organizations as its sponsors. We will monitor sponsors carefully so that our members do not feel uncomfortable – but rather reap the rewards of enabling us to do much more with the added funds sponsorship provides.

 

How does my company sign up as a Sponsor?

If you believe your company has an interest in becoming a Club sponsor, the time to act is now.
