The cost of running an FRC team is quite high, and our team relies heavily on corporate and community sponsorships to make this program possible. The cost breakdown for the program is included in this letter, and upon review, it is clear that our team could not exist without the generosity of our corporate and community sponsors!
In addition to contributing to our successful and highly impactful program, there are practical benefits to sponsoring our team as well. At every level of contribution, sponsor logos are displayed on our webpage and all promotional materials we create. In previous years, this included a video our team made to promote FIRST Robotics--that was sent to every school in Chicago and tweeted to over 17,000 people. At higher sponsorship levels, sponsor logos are placed on our team uniform and on the robot itself! We also like to come up with creative ways of thanking our partners. We have appeared in two commercials for one of our sponsors. Our team has also run demos at local elementary schools and have helped to start several elementary school teams. Our team members have logged over 3,500 volunteering hours and presented at major Chicago institutions such as the Museum of Science and Industry and Northwestern University. We proudly display our sponsor logos at these events and remind everyone we meet that our team wouldn’t exist without the support of our sponsors.
Your sponsorship will help pave the way for future generations of mathematicians, scientists, and engineers. Former team members have moved on from the program to study Computer Science and Engineering at universities such as Harvard, Boston University, Northwestern, Carnegie Mellon, and UIUC (just to name a few!).
We hope that you will kindly consider partnering with our program. Below is more detailed information about our financial needs and how you can become involved in sponsoring our team. Should you have any further questions please contact our coach, Robert Berg, at email@example.com.
Thank you so much for your consideration in partnering with our program.
Sincerely, The Students of Team #4645: The Chicago Style BotDogs
