Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival is only made possible thanks to the help of funders, sponsors and donors. Without this support Glasgow Building Preservation Trust would be unable to deliver the festival and continue to put on events for free.
If every visitor who attended the festival in 2017 made a donation of less than 10p we would hit our fundraising target - no donation is too small!
In the past five years the festival has welcomed more than 89,000 visitors. With continued popularity comes an increasing demand to re-imagine the programme, print and distribute as many brochures as possible and put on new unique events. Each year GBPT is tasked with raising the funds to make the most basic things like printing our brochures possible. Your donation allows us to focus less on fundraising and more on opening up new buildings and programming exciting events and activities.
The ongoing support of our funders and donors is the cornerstone of the success of Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival and the key to the future of the event.
With an ever-growing loyal visitor base comes increased opportunities for the promotion of organisations wishing to support the festival and wanting to connect with a highly engaged audience. We have a number of sponsorship packages, with opportunities that range from logo promotion in our brochures to name recognition in speeches and press releases, and half-page adverts in our brochures.
Our 2020 Sponsorship brochure is available here.
We are more than happy to discuss mutually beneficial partnerships or to build custom packages to best suit you. For more information, or to discuss a partnership, please get in touch via the contact form below.
