Homecoming Dates Announced!
October 11-13, 2013
Homecoming is a special time at Doane College; a fall chill returns to the air, the leaves change to a golden hue and our alumni return for a renewed connection with friends. Your Alumni Office is proud to host another great weekend of friendship, food, and fun!
This year’s events promise to be bigger and better than ever. Your leadership is key in developing new traditions and continuing the old. Corporate sponsorships are available to alumni leaders that would like to promote their business or co-sponsor with another group. The marketing possibilities are endless, and your business will be recognized in all communication and signage. Personal sponsorships are also available.
Please fill out the form listed below and the Alumni Office will follow up with interested individuals.
$3,000 Tailgate Sponsorship
This is the day to throw the diet out the window! Tailgate Sponsors allow School of Arts and Sciences visitors in Crete to put their wallet away and enjoy a day in the sun with family. Sponsorship will pay for a free meal and dessert as guests head to the football game.
$1,500 Carnival Sponsorship
It wouldn’t be a tailgate without plenty of entertainment and games. We pride ourselves on bringing you all the sights and sounds to help energize your weekend. Example activities include bounce houses, arcade games, football toss, cotton candy, funnel cakes, and much more.
The Campus Celebrations
$1,500 Graduate and Professional Studies (GPS) Lincoln Campus Sponsorship
$1,500 GPS Grand Island Campus Sponsorship
A day in the park or a birthday celebration for the Grand Island campus. There are many possibilities to encourage our non-traditional alumni, students, and families to return to the spot that helped launch their academic career. These sponsorships will provide the funds to add a creative twist to a new tradition.
$1,000 TeamMates Mentoring Program Sponsorship
TeamMate students from across the state are invited to visit during Homecoming for a special behind the scenes tour of the Crete campus and an inside look at what higher education has to offer. This visit day includes a free lunch for the students, a grab bag of Doane goodies, t-shirts, and a strong lesson in life.
$500 Out-of-Town Event Sponsorship
Can’t make it back to Doane to celebrate? No problem. Last year proved to be a banner year for pop up Homecoming events across the nation. Sponsorships are being sought to help Chapters and other event leaders receive memorabilia and other supplies to throw a great party!
5K races are the talk of the town and the Homecoming Committee is ready to bring back a great race…with a few minor tweaks to provide an exciting experience. Additional support will help this reinvigorated event take off!
The Loose Ends
Donate any amount at your own discretion and funds will be applied to the Homecoming area in most need.
