Be a Sponsor

The Festival of Trees is in its 22nd year as the premier, family-centered holiday event for the Bloomington-Normal community. 100% of proceeds from the Festival go directly toward serving the children and families of The Baby Fold.

The success of the Festival is credited largely to our many sponsors who give generously as an investment in The Baby Fold, our community, and as an excellent marketing opportunity.

We would love to include you as a sponsor this year and make this year’s fundraiser the best ever!

Title Sponsorship Opportunities

There are several options for Festival Title Sponsorships.  Title sponsors are exclusive and are included in the name of the area or event.

Title sponsor investment is at the Gold and Diamond levels.

Tree and Wreath Sponsors

Sponsors have an opportunity to market themselves through the Festival’s namesake, our beautiful trees and wreaths.  Sponsor names will be prominently displayed with a designer tree or wreath.  The sponsor can choose to keep the item to beautify their business during the holidays, to reward an employee or customer through a special drawing or a number of creative options.  Alternatively, sponsors may have it auctioned off at the Festival to benefit The Baby Fold.  There are three sponsorship levels:

  • 7-foot Tree
  • 4-foot Tree
  • Wreath
