The link I have provided in this posting is a sample term sheet that might be useful when you are considering setting a policy or guidelines upon receiving sponsorship from a corporate partner. You will find several paragraphs of clauses addressing a variety of topics that might come up when establishing a relationship with a corporate sponsor.
For example, here is some advice on writing a clause about your non-proft hosting special events:
“Nonprofits need to be in the drivers seat to design programs and special events that meet their needs – not primarily their sponsor’s needs. The nonprofit should maintain control of the program, choice of venue and content of special event.”
I like this sample form because it gives you advice on what clauses you should include, and then supplies you with the wording for such a clause. If you present this to your sponsor, not only will they appreciate it, but you will look professional, organized, and show that you understand the importance of what their sponsorship means!
