Local Event Sponsors

Sample sponsorship drive for local event sponsors:

<Contract>:

OSGeo is restarting our sponsorship program and would like to ask
if you are interested in supporting us this year.

We have a number of creative options for local event sponsors, based
on your existing sponsorship of the GeoNode code-sprint you are
already considered a Bronze sponsor. We would like your permission to
list you as such on the OSGeo sponsors page.

With our revised sponsorship levels we would encourage you to consider
Silver sponsorship either directly by sponsoring OSGeo, sponsoring
the Paris Code Sprint or sponsoring FOSS4G 2016 in Bonn.

As part of this sponsorship drive we are soliciting feedback on the value
OSGeo can provide your organization, and any sponsorship benefits we
may be in position to offer. If you have a moment for an email discussion
or hangout it would be great to hear from you.
