The Four Key Areas of Sponsorship
The Arizona Lottery looks for opportunities to create a lasting presence in communities across the state. We focus on four key areas: education, health and public welfare, the environment, and economic/business development. Funding for named scholarships, awards, specific programs, or other sustaining initiatives is preferred.
The Arizona Lottery’s evaluation process for sponsorships focuses on how well a proposal fulfills the following criteria:
♦ Alignment – Does the event align with one of the state pillars of focus (education, health and public welfare, the environment, and economic/business development)?
♦ Audience – The size and demographics of the audience and the likelihood of appreciation of the Arizona Lottery’s involvement and messaging.
♦ Assets – Marketing opportunities (logo recognition, print ads, banners, premium distribution, website mention, public address mention, programs, invites, etc.) to recognize the Arizona Lottery’s sponsorship.
Monetary and Merchandise Sponsorships
The Arizona Lottery sponsors monetary and merchandise sponsorships events. Monetary sponsorships range from $100-$4,500; merchandise sponsorships support silent auctions, raffles, attendee giveaways, or door prizes. To be considered for a sponsorship, the event must be:
♦ located in the state of Arizona,
♦ attended by participants who are at least 21 years of age, and
♦ open to the general public (individual or family requests will not be considered).
Walks/runs with past registrations of at least 250 participants will be considered. All other sporting events are not eligible for sponsorships. These organizations are encouraged to apply for a merchandise sponsorship instead.
The Arizona Lottery must receive measurable value (see application form for details). Multiple requests may be submitted, but organizations are limited to a single approved sponsorship annually.
The Arizona Lottery reserves the right to accept or deny requests based on internal evaluation of the sponsorship's conformance to criteria, as well as potential for maximizing the Arizona Lottery's promotional investment and branding.
