2020 Julia Green Read-A-thon
Read-A-Thon is an 11-day-long reading marathon that takes place from January 24 – February 3, 2020. Students read as many books as they can during this time to help improve their literacy skills. Read-A-Thon has always been a time honored, child-driven fundraiser for all kindergarten through fourth grade students at Julia Green Elementary School. Last year, students took pride in reading over 40,000 books during Read-A-Thon to achieve levels of reading recognition.
Read-A-Thon Corporate Sponsorships
We invite you to show your support of our students with four options of fully tax-deductible giving. For more information about sponsorship opportunities, please contact Kelly O'Rear (email@example.com) or download a Corporate Sponsorship Form or a Corporate Sponsorship Letter.
$500 Gold Sponsor:
The donor gets up to four Read-A-Thon t-shirts, their name/logo in the Read-A-Thon booklet, and their name/logo on a banner hung at the front entrance of the school. They will receive a “shout out” in the Hornet News, which is distributed to approximately 500 people.
$1,000 Hornet Sponsor:
The donor receives all the benefits of a Gold sponsor, along with a yard sign with your company’s name and logo placed in the school’s ‘front yard’ on Hobbs Road. You will also receive a table top sign that can be displayed in your office that recognizes your support. Hornet Sponsors will also have their name/logo on the Read-A-Thon t-shirts.
$2,500 Bookmark Sponsor:
To kick off Read-A-Thon, Julia Green will send each student home with a new book, and also a bookmark with the sponsor’s name and logo. During this two-week period and beyond, approximately 500 students and their families will be seeing this bookmark each day – talk about exposure! This sponsorship also receives all of the benefits of a Hornet Sponsorship.
**$5,000 Presenting Sponsor**:
For the utmost exposure to ALL of our families and neighbors, we invite you to be one of our first Presenting Sponsors. As a Presenting Sponsor, all printed and emailed materials will display your business’ name prominently as “Julia Green’s Read-A-Thon Presented By ________.” Presenting Sponsors will also receive all of the benefits of a Hornet Sponsorship.
