support the pavilion project
We ran a crowdfunding campaign in July 2018 and reached our target of £5,000 in a little over three weeks.
You can still donate via this crowdfunding site by clicking on the “donate now” link although the many rewards we offered during the campaign are now all sold out. However, we still need your active support and all donations are welcome.
The Pavilion Project offers many sponsorship opportunities for both business and grant-giving bodies. There are many levels of sponsorship available to suit all business objectives and budgets. These include opportunities associated with significant parts of the building - be it sponsoring the central communal hub, changing-room wings, viewing terraces or the service wing - and smaller items such as the scoreboards; furniture for inside and outside; the weather vane; kitchen equipment; sanitary ware etc.Currently, 15.3million people play sport once a week, every week; an increase of 1.4 million following the London 2012 Olympics.
There are over 150,000 grassroots sports clubs, with 8 million regular participants in the UK. Supporting grassroots sport is an ideal opportunity to raise profiles and play a key part in the local community. Already The Pavilion Project has attracted considerable media interest including numerous articles in the Hampshire Chronicle, the architectural press and has featured on local TV news; we expect this to increase.
Benefits to sponsors
Options to display your organisation name and branding on a ‘pride of place’ sponsors’ board in the central communal hub to ensure positive brand association. This will provide ‘top of mind’ brand awareness and visibility to pavilion users - or in a sponsored zone, or on the prominent scoreboards.
Reinforce corporate image via a ‘halo effect’ association with a high profile, architecturally distinctive building providing a modern, accessible and sustainable sports and community facility. Further potential exists through entering the design into national architecture awards.
Regular opportunities for free name mentions in public relations activity, on websites, in social media posts during the fundraising campaign, build phase and arising from ongoing use of the pavilion by groups publicising their activities.
Invitation to a high- profile and exclusive opening event. This is a very exciting time to be involved with The Pavilion Project; a community project that will garner extensive coverage and which can significantly aid raising visibility with the local community.
