FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS



General


1. What is Sponsorable?

Sponsorable is an online sponsorship platform that connects the right corporate sponsors to the right event organizers. How we do so is simple: Our approach of being "sponsor-first" allows us to partner up with corporate sponsors to understand their sponsorship objectives, specific requirements, and support they can provide events and social causes. Our platform features the sponsorship programs offered by these dedicated supporters of the community, and allow for direct, customised applications that answer clearly the questions that sponsors want answered.

Your time is saved as Sponsorable presents clearly what each sponsorship program can offer, what are the eligibility criteria and provide an application submission form that provides most of the answers that each specific sponsor requires to make an informed decision.

We are also a social enterprise, and are registered as a member of the Social Enterprise Association.



2. Why are we doing this?

Our platform is run by a team of passionate student-entrepreneurs with a strong belief that the way project organizers approach sponsors for support can be radically improved. While the world has evolved with the advent of the Internet, information about sponsorships for both projects and brands is scarcely lacking in the web.

Our social mission is to revolutionize the way projects with a compelling social cause approach sponsors for support, and to help them bring their projects to life.


3. Who can access the platform?

The platform is available for the public to view, with all sponsorship programs being publicly available. However, submitting a sponsorship application requires an account. If you are an event organizer, you can create an account here at https://sponsorable.co/login/signin.php.

Sponsors who would like to log in into their private Admin account to manage sponsorship applications can do so here at https://sponsorable.co/sponsor/login.php. Please drop us an email at [email protected] if you would like the platform to feature your sponsorship program.


4. How do sponsors and project organizers communicate?

Communication first begins when event organizers browse through featured sponsorship programs and understand more about the corporate sponsorship programs available that are suitable for their event to apply for.

Event organizers can then send in direct sponsorship applications to these corporate sponsors via Sponsorable. While we maintain a strict policy of maintaining sponsor privacy (e.g. contact details cannot be found on Sponsorable), we guarantee that every sponsorship application will reach the person-in-charge of the sponsorship program!

Upon approval of the application by sponsor, further discussions may be required before a final decision is made. And so, contact details will be exchanged at the sponsors' discretion. All negotiations, clarifications or discussions will be between the applicant and sponsor.


5. What happens if there is a breach of the Code of Conduct by a user?

Sponsorable reserves the right to suspend or terminate the account if it appears to us that the user, or account has been used in breach of the Code of Conduct or any applicable laws.


For Project Organizers


6. What’s the cost? Is setting up an account free?

Yes, setting up an account is free! It is noteworthy that an application fee of $5 is applicable upon submission of every application. This helps to keep our applications clear of spam from unrelated and poorly defined applications, and also to sustain our operations as a social enterprise. Your application will be directly sent to the sponsor once payment is made.


7. How do I send in sponsorship applications to featured sponsors?

Simply visit our featured sponsors page at https://sponsorable.co/sponsorship/explore/ and browse through the list to find the right sponsor for your event. Different sponsors provide different forms of support e.g. food, drinks, venue, cash, volunteerism and often have different target audience/eligibility criteria.

Once you have found sponsorship programs that you think are suitable, fill in the application forms and you're ready to send in your customised proposal to the sponsors!


8. Can I create an event page to showcase my event?

Yes you can! Use our simple and intuitive sponsorship builder here at https://sponsorable.co/form/ and you are ready to go!

If you do not create a video, you will still need to upload at least one image for your project to be listed.


9. Do I need to create a video for my event?

No, videos are not necessary for your event, but it is highly recommended. However, projects with a compelling and engaging video creates a strong visual impact on potential sponsors, and helps them raise more sponsorship from a larger pool of sponsors.

If you do not create a video, you will still need to upload at least one image for your project to be listed.

10. What are the requirements to become a sponsor?

Drop us an email at [email protected] and we'll be happy to discuss how we can feature your company sponsorship program on Sponsorable. Just as long as you are willing and able to provide some form of support (be it food, drinks, venue, products, cash or volunteerism) ;)


11. Is there a limit to how many projects I can sponsor?

No, there is no limit to how many projects you can sponsor! The more the merrier!


12. Is there any commitment to sponsor events that apply through Sponsorable?

No, you do not have to sponsor all events that apply for your sponsorship program! That's ridiculous. We do however, require you to be responsive to applications, and decide by either approving or declining applications. Approving applications usually prompts an exchange of contact details to further discussions or simply finalising certain details before a happy partnership.
