Sponsor PartnersMost participants say they are more likely to do business with a sponsor than with a non-sponsor. In an independent study on sponsorship conducted by Performance Research, the world leader in consumer based sponsorship, the following results were found:

56%of respondents said they would almost always or frequently buy a product to support a company sponsoring an arts or recreation event over one that does not.

43%of Americans with an interest in arts and recreation events indicate that they hold a “higher” trust in companies that sponsor these events compared to those that do not.

Participants support the Greenville Area Recreation & Community Center programs and events, and they want to spend their money with businesses that do, as well.
