NIU Alumni Association Golf Outing

2017 Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsoring the NIU Alumni Association Golf Outing is an opportunity to promote your business to one of the largest alumni networks in northern Illinois. Sponsors can reserve spots for up to four golfers in the outing before registration opens to the general public.

The golf outing typically sells out, drawing more than 220 golfers to one of the best public courses in Illinois. In addition, we will promote your brand online before and after the event to build the positive association between you and NIU alumni.

Sponsorship at any level will get your company's name and/or logo on three dedicated golf outing emails, averaging more than 7,000 exposures apiece. Logos of the partner, dinner and cart sponsors will also appear on all emails that mention the golf outing, including three editions of the e-newsletter, which averages 14,000 opens each month. That's more than 62,000 total exposures!
