Advertise with us during our 2016-17 season

Promote your company to our community

Increase cycling opportunities for Bay Area kids

Community Sponsors believe in the positive impact that bicycling brings to all kids–developing self-confidence, independence, a healthy lifestyle – and to our communities – less traffic and pollution, healthy citizens, and mobility for people of almost every age! As a Community Sponsor, you or your business can help us expand our services in three key areas:

  • Providing camps and classes to underserved communities.
  • Providing bikes to those without.
  • Encouraging girls to participate in cycling.

RESULTS

The following is a snapshot of what sponsorship can provide.

  • $150: Allows three kids per week to participate in summer camp lunch or extended hours options.
  • $250: Secures an expert-led, themed program for up to 30 kids during summer camp.
  • $500: Provides a kid a week of camp; or, buys a kid’s bike and helmet, and a year of maintenance and storage.
  • $1,000: Covers transportation costs for a weekly field trip.

WHY ADVERTISE?

It’s easy, inexpensive, and reaches the community you want to serve.

  • We’re growing. 2010: 50 kids served. 2015: over 2,000 kids served.
  • We serve public and private school families almost equally: 46% public, 54% private.
  • We serve families in areas that matter to you: San Francisco, Palo Alto, Los Gatos, and Walnut Creek.
  • We’re highly visible – groups of kids on their bikes are hard to miss. Your information travels with them.

Community Sponsor levels begin at $100 for individuals and $500 for businesses. Your name and/or business logo will be featured on a variety of Wheel Kids media, including marketing collateral, social media, and hard goods. Wheel Kids is not a nonprofit; your sponsorship is recognized through advertising to our community.

All sponsorship levels are based on CASH sponsorship. For PRODUCT sponsorship, the value of your sponsorship (determined by you) would be double the amount of the equivalent cash sponsorship (i.e., Silver level sponsorship is available for $2,500 cash or $5,000 product sponsorship).

All business sponsors are given the opportunity to provide swag (your product or logo items) for distribution to our registrants and neighbors at our clubhouse locations. All Silver and above sponsors will be featured in each of our regular newsletters (approx. 1,850 subscribers). All Bronze and above sponsors will be featured on our 2016 camp t-shirts (approx. 1,000 registrants).

Sponsorship deadline for inclusion on our 2016 hard-goods (t-shirts, water bottles, banners, bike stickers, etc. [as appropriate to sponsorship level]) is 21 March 2016. Deadline for delivery of sponsorship products and swag is 15 May 2016.
