How to Become a Sponsor

Become an Annual Event Sponsor Today
Dear Friend of The Palapa Society,

My name is Erick Ochoa, and I am the President of the Board of Directors of The Palapa Society of Todos Santos, A.C. We are a multi-cultural non-profit Mexican Civil Association. Our mission is the development and administration of scholarships and quality educational opportunities for local children and their families.

This includes:
Scholarship support for our academically gifted public Secundaria, Prepa, and University students in need of financial assistance.The Palapa School – A SEP-certified Secundaria and Prepa school, with an advanced, 21st century curriculum that helps prepare local students not only for University, but for a fulfilling life beyond the classroom.The Palapa Learning Center which includes community English programs for adults and children, after school programs including Art, Environmental Education, and Water Safety, and the Biblioteca Elena Poniatowska bi-lingual public library for adults and children.
These educational opportunities offer a lifetime of choices and a brighter future for the children and their families in our community. We receive no government or corporate support, and raise all funds through individual donations and annual events.
Every year, we reach out to local businesses in Todos Santos, El Pescadero and Cerritos to become an Event sponsor. Sponsorship covers the costs of production, which in turn, allows us to pass all funds raised directly into the scholarships, community programs, library, and The Palapa school.
In turn, we increase the visibility of your support of The Palapa Society in the community, and encourage them to support your business.
To make supporting our organization easier on you, we have streamlined our event sponsorship program. We will request a donation from you only one time per year, and give you payment plan options that work with your business needs.
Our Goal: Raise $30,000 USD to cover all production costs for the 2019/20 Event Season, and to double that in revenue combined from all events.

In-kind DonationsIf you would like to provide us in-kind donations, please provide us the value of your gift. If it’s part of a sponsorship tier and does not equal the level we ask that you pay the remainder in cash so we can cover expenses. Examples of In-kind Donations include Items for the Gastrovino 2020 Silent Auction, or Space for Volunteer appreciation parties. Payments/PledgesWe recognize that your business cash flow can fluctuate throughout the year. So, we have created a pledge program that will allow you to make incremental payments each month during the 2019/20 high season. We ask that all payments be completed by March 1, 2020. Tax Deductions (Mexico)The Palapa Society can provide you with a donativo for your cash donations. Please provide us with your business information and RFC in order to issue. Please request at the time of your acceptance of sponsoring our events.
If you are interested in becoming a Palapa Society sponsor for the 2019/20 season, please email us at info@palapasociety.org to schedule a meeting with one of our Board members to speak with you personally.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Because of community members like you, we are able to continue providing quality education for local children and their families.
