When you become a major donor to the Grand Canyon Panorama Project, contributing at the $500, $1000 or higher level, you have the opportunity to become a sponsor of the project. Each panorama within the project is open for sponsorship, and for each $500 you contribute to the project, you may select from within any of the previously unsponsored panoramas within the project, and become that panorama’s permanent sponsor.
When you become a sponsor, you provide us with a logo and/or a brief bit of text. The above image shows a sample corporate style sponsor message, complete with logo, as it will appear on the gateway page for a panorama, immediately below the spinning panorama preview and just above the transcript of the panorama’s narrative. Both the logo and the text can be hyperlinks to the web page of your choice. The image below shows how the same sponsor would appear within the panorama itself. The sponsorship message will appear for 10 seconds whenever a visitor enters the sponsored panorama, and then fade out. Just as on the gateway page, a click on the sponsor’s logo or a link with the text will take the visitor to the web location specified by the sponsor.
Sponsorship, however, is not just for businesses. Let the world know of your generous support of the Grand Canyon Panorama Project, and of your love for something or some one special person in your life. The image below shows a sample message celebrating a wedding anniversary.
Do note, however, that your qualifying sponsorship-level donation entitles you to additional gifts and benefits – a framed poster at the $500 level, and, at the $1000 level, a tour at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon provided personally by Larry Wieland. Federal tax law, however, provides that you can deduct only the true gift amount of charitable donations, reducing the amount that you can deduct below your full donation amount. Sponsorship, however, is completely free, so even if you choose to forego the gifts we offer at the $500 and $1000 level, you can still sponsor panoramas. As soon as you make your qualifying sponsorship-level donation, we will contact you to gather the sponsorship information and links you wish to display, even if you choose to forego the other gifts and make your entire contribution to the Grand Canyon Panorama Project tax deductible.
