You Make the Difference!
Connect with a vibrant audience of local parents and families, and put your commitment to community into action. By sponsoring an AOK event, our members learn of your support, and you make it possible for us to provide our events at no cost for foster and adoptive families. It's a win-win!
What are AOK Events?
All Our Kids is primarily known for bringing foster and adoptive families together in person, to create community and support each other through the challenge of caring for these amazing children. Held between 4-6 times a year, our events typically bring hundreds of people together for fun, activities, crafts, games, and food. Kids get a chance to be kids, surrounded by families who look like theirs and have experienced similar things. Parents get an opportunity to interact with others who “get” it, who have been in their shoes and can help them move forward. These are special events that feel like extended family gatherings. Some of our events are exclusively for our member families, while others are open to the public.
Why Sponsor an AOK Event?
Your sponsorship will be recognized on all event materials, promotional flyers, and at the event itself. Depending on the event, we welcome between 200 and 1,000 attendees. Your sponsorship will also be displayed on our social media pages, on our website, and in our newsletter that is sent to 2,500 recipients!
Your donation is tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by the IRS.
Why do we need sponsors?
AOK relies on the generosity of our community to help us serve and support our families. Events are expensive. Sponsorship funds go toward venue rental fees and purchasing food. Additionally, when funding allows, we purchase craft activities and fun giveaways (bubbles, stickers) for kids. It doesn’t take much to help make our events successful, and we hope we can count on you. Each event costs us approximately $4,000 to put on (our Sundae Funday 5K and our Holiday Event are usually around $12,000).
