If you are planning an event, think about the supplies you need and approach a vendor for in-kind donations to use at your event. You can often request support from companies in exchange for advertising on your flyers, brochures, letters, T-shirts and other event materials. Please note: we cannot provide tax receipts for these types of contributions.
We can provide the necessary paperwork to show that their donation will directly benefit a 501 (c)(3). Please reach out to your designated Team Roswell staff member for such materials.
When you are soliciting sponsors, first go to your personal connections, family and friends for donations.

For any sponsorship questions, give us a call at 716*845-8788, or email TeamRoswell@RoswellPark.org.
