As you know, The Mommies Network is proud to offer FREE membership to any mom living in the chapter area (and to ANY mom on our National Chapter). It’s an important part of our mission to remain free so that any mom, regardless of her financial situation, can have access to our services and resources.
While we do depend on member donations and fundraisers, we also rely heavily on sponsors to fund our network and build new programs for our membership.
Sponsorship on our chapters is a win-win for the chapter and the sponsor. As members of their local community, our chapters are eager to build relationships with local mom- and kid-friendly businesses. Businesses who cater to moms and children are eager to share their products and services with our membership. Sponsorship gives local businesses the opportunity to invest in our chapters, to show our members that they believe that moms are a powerful and important part of our community and deserve to have a local network of support.
Chapter Sponsors make it possible for our chapters to remain free for our members and our members are grateful for the resource that our sponsors provide to them.
We understand that “solicitation” and “fundraising” can sound scary, let me assure you we’re not asking you to go pound the pavement and find sponsors for your chapter!
But what *can* you do?
Let local businesses know about your chapter. When you get a recommendation from someone on your chapter, be sure to let the business you choose know that you heard about them from your local TMN chapter. If you know or like a business that you think your fellow moms will also enjoy, let the business know how to engage with the other members on your chapter through our FREE Business Membership and sponsorship opportunities. All of the information is located on your chapter website – you simply need to share with them the website link and encourage them to check it out!
If you own a business that caters to moms or children, consider sponsoring your local chapter. You already know what a great resource it is for moms – make an investment that not only will help your business, but will also help you and your fellow members!
Be a SPARK this week:
- Tell a local mom- or kid-friendly business about your chapter
- Let recommended businesses know where you heard about them
- If you own a business, sign up for our FREE Business Membership and consider sponsoring your chapter to support the moms in your community
Until next time,
