While organizers do our best to provide free/low cost events, there are costs to cover the group's maintenance (monthly Meetup.com fees, marketing and other expenses add up to a substantial amount). In order to keep our events and membership free we're asking our members to suggest possible sponsors for our group.
Our group offers a great opportunity for local businesses that serve the local community to increase their visibility without hurting their budget. For a little support (that would help cover our monthly and other expenses) local businesses would be able to advertise as a proud sponsor of the largest Midwest Vegetarian/Vegan community group, as well as to have a low-cost "targeted" advertisement with their company name/logo and website link placed on this website home page. We will also introduce our sponsors via ChicagoVeg social media and encourage support them in our annual email newsletter to all (currently 8000+) ChicagoVeg Meetup members.
On the top of these benefits, there are a number of additional opportunities to make the sponsorship even more effective: presentations, specials, and more!
Please contact us for any questions/suggestions or sponsorship referrals.
