Become a Sponsor

This year the SWBS wanted to expand its Sponsorship capabilities to an on-line experience that includes the use of PayPal for Financial Donations, and on-line capability for made In-Kind Donations as well. This is intended to make it easier for people to contribute throughout the year. To accommodate this we split Sponsorship into Financial Donations and In-Kind Donations, with each having their own separate pages.

Financial Donations

Financial donations can now be made thru PayPal on-line or the traditional paper form can be completed and mailed in with a check.


In-Kind Donations

In addition to the personal contact form of soliciting your support with an In-Kind donation, you now have the ability to complete & submit a form on-line that describes your intended donation and how to be contacted. NC Statutes prohibit the SWBS from establishing the value of goods or services donated for tax deduction purposes so a space has been provided for the donor to do so the SWBS can send you a form with your declared value after the event.
