Backpack News Sponsorship
Backpack News, the weekly newsletter of the PS 87 community, is a
valuable advertising vehicle for local businesses that want to reach
Upper West Side parents with school-age children. For $400, we will
print and staple one letter-size flyer describing your business to each
copy of the newsletter. You design the flyer (black ink on white paper
only), send us a PDF, and we do the printing, stapling and distribution.
Or, for $150, we will print a small text-only ad on Page 2 of the
newsletter. Page 2 ads offer just enough room to list the name of your
business, your contact information (phone number and website) and a
sentence or two about what services or goods you provide. For additional
information about advertising in Backpack News, send an e-mail to Skip
Card at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donating Goods and Services
Please consider sponsoring or contributing to some of the larger
fundraising events at the school. We’ll proudly help you display your
own promotional materials, such as signage, flyers, take-ones or
business cards, next to your contribution. Donors are always thanked in Backpack News, as well.
Consider donating tickets to theatre, music, sports or other
cultural events at our annual Ticket Auction, held each November during
parent/teacher conferences. Remember, the Ticket Bid Sheets are posted
in the lobby, and some tickets are highlighted in articles in Backpack News. Buzz about your event can start – or grow – on the West Side.
Items and services donated to our annual Auction are described
in the Auction Bid Booklet. Not only do bidders review your donation
description at the Auction tables and ahead of time in the Bid Booklet,
but winners continue to sell your products or services after the Auction
in the best way possible: word of mouth!
