How do I find willing businesses to support and donate money for a Orchestra show?

I’m trying to get local businesses to support my orchestra, and if they do, they get ad space on my school orchestra pamphlet. So far, I’ve advertised on craigslist and now im searching google maps for local businesses to find possible businesses to send letters to. any other ideas would be helpful. Thanks!

    I have been currently promoting a concert myself (rock, not orchestra) and my business associate and I have been to local businesses and talked to them personally. I would suggest the same. It’s easier to write people off when they aren’t looking you in the face.

    I just went out to businesses today looking for donations for the youth art department at the county fair. hehe! This is my advice:

    You need to physically approach local businesses. Try to at first stay relevant to what you are asking donations for… such as music stores or musical equipment. Anything that supports the arts. Make sure your donation letter is on official school letterhead (Music Dept. specific?) and has a form for them to fill out so that you have their business information with each donation and for what amount.

    Then, you have to physically go to the businesses. Why? Because showing your face (and perhaps being in uniform and even bringing your instruments along if they are not too heavy) will put you on their preferred list of all the requests they might get for donations. Then, just nail every business you can think of. Don’t focus a lot on major national chains, it’s too complicated getting them to go through corporate and such. Stay locally owned businesses. It will give them good advertising opportunities.

    So yeah. Craigslist ads aren’t what you need. Sending letters by mail gives you a small percentage of success. PERSONALLY approaching managers and store owners and such will definitely get you donations. You can leave letters with them to look over at their leisure if they don’t want to make a decision right away.

    Good luck!

More than half with the uninsured are under the age of 35. They do not experience they are requiring health insurance because they’re young and healthy. Its income is generally spent on houses, food, in addition to entertainment. Some people that do work either complete or in their free time are not provided insurance by way of their work so they move without owing to the rising cost of health insurance in the United States. Thanks for the concepts you share through this web site.

    Thanks for your strategies. One thing we’ve noticed is that banks and also financial institutions are aware of the spending practices of consumers and as well understand that plenty of people max out their own credit cards around the holidays. They correctly take advantage of this fact and start flooding your inbox and also snail-mail box with hundreds of no interest APR card offers immediately after the holiday season comes to an end. Knowing that if you’re like 98% in the American community, you’ll rush at the one opportunity to consolidate consumer credit card debt and switch balances to 0 rate credit cards.
