Corporate Supporters

The Sierra Vista Veterans Memorial Improvement project is undertaken by the Sierra Vista Veterans Memorial Improvement Foundation (SVVMIF) to improve the present Veterans memorial by adding a Veterans Trail with 14 monuments traversing a V-shaped trail that focuses attention to the central Assembly Plaza. This project will greatly enhance the visibility and prestige of this memorial. Memorial pavers will also be an element of the memorial to involve the community in memorializing their fellow Veterans, family, and friends in an enduring way. Future enhancements may include any number of features such as statues and lighted accents.

The SVVMIF invites corporate supporters to participate in recognizing Veterans in meaningful ways. The need for immediate support and for enduring support is desirable to address needs and issues as they arise during and after implementation.

The following financial support options would be invited:

· Single or recurring contributions or financial commitments (endowments)

· Project advocacy

Financial Support

The levels of corporate support would be as follows:

Patriot: The Patriot level of support is reached with $2,500 to $7,499 of support provided, either in a single or series of contributions

Defender: The Defender level of support is reached with $7,500 to $14,999 of support provided, either in a single or series of contributions

Warrior: The Warrior level of support is reached when $15,000 + of support is provided, either in a single or series of contributions

Project Advocacy Support

Corporate supporters may wish to lend their resources to solicitations and advertising. The advertising could be in literature, web sites or broadcast media. The level of support and recognition would be determined by the fair market cost of the advertising. Results of special solicitations would also be used to gauge the level of contribution and recognition.

Recognizing Supporters

Corporate financial supporters would be considered in monument acknowledgements in very discreet locations on monuments for support received prior to the construction of monuments. Subsequent commitments can be recognized on the foundation websites such as on the web page or on the Facebook page of the foundation.

The levels of recognition would be as follows:

Patriot: For Patriot-level contributions, 4”x8” paver in an area apart from the Veteran dedication/memorial pavers.

Defender: For Defender-level contributions, 8”x8” tile in an area apart from the Veteran dedication/memorial tiles.

Warrior: For Warrior-level contributions, a monument inscription acknowledgement for early financial sponsorship. 8”x8” tile in an area apart from the Veteran dedication/memorial tiles.
