Sponsor A Camper
The excitement is high going into Media Now’s seventh season. We anticipate having another highly motivated group of 350+ high school journalists and advisers from more than 40 different schools across the country come together on the campus of Mizzou and Drake University this summer for Media Now.
While we work hard to keep costs down for our campers, there are still many students under financial stress that may keep them from attending. We encourage camper sponsorship to help ease this stress. You’ll see the various options below. Each gift is greatly appreciated and given based on needs and desire to attend. You can give anonymously or, if preferred, a business or publication name can be added to the camp materials.
Please send any questions about sponsoring a camper to co-director, Kate Manfull (email@example.com). Thank you for your generosity in advance.
This level of sponsorship helps a camper make the first steps towards a camp experience. By giving them the $50 required deposit funds a camper can secure their spot at camp and this will also allow them to select a class early enough to get their top choice.
Your donation of $100 will provide a camper with on-campus housing in the dorms. Campers can engage with other student journalists making lifelong friends. Staying on campus allows students to make the most of their experience.
HALFWAY TO CAMP
Your gift of $200 will help reduce the total camp to 50% out-of-pocket. This will give a deserving camper the opportunity to attend this summer; an opportunity that they may have missed due of financial struggle.
Your generous gift of $400 will provide a deserving journalist with the full camp experience. This gift will cover the cost of attending camp, course fees, meals and housing during the bootcamp. Give anonymously or have your organization recognized as a camp sponsor.
WANT TO GIVE MORE? WE HAVE OPTIONS.[For Businesses/organizations looking to give $500+ in product or cash donation to support the overall camp experience.]
We create videos specifically for this camp about your brand, then share online and in large group sessions.
If you donate items with your name on them, we capture excited students using or wearing your business name, product or gift.
Custom games and contests get your business repeat mentions and direct ties to the students and advisers at camp and external online play.
We work with you to customize branding opportunities with our campers that make it a fun and rewarding experience for all. Scavenger hunts, texting games, awards banquet sponsorship or take-home packages for attendees—whatever your fancy. We want to make it work for you.
If you’re interested in sponsoring just one camper to attend camp or to serve as a title sponsor of the camp experience, we encourage you to reach out to Kate for the win-win options.
