A WalkAround® mascot is an investment in your organization. If your budget doesn't allow for simply writing a check, take note: about half of all high schools that own WalkAround mascots got the costumes for free through sponsorship. Non-profit groups, public safety departments, universities, and small businesses have also had great success with sponsorships and grants.
WalkAround mascots are high quality, high visibility, and long lasting - they're the perfect vehicle for a sponsor. They're also incredibly effective education tools. We have had great experience working with organizations to obtain grant funding.
Additionally, our staff will work with you from the beginning to guide the design of your mascot to something that can fit within you budget. We have lower-priced stock costumes and can sell any item in our rental inventory too - your graphics or logos can be added to either option.
We have several customers, from professional entertainers to high schools, that use their WalkAround mascots to make money. Selling annual sponsorship, charging a fee for appearances, and fundraising with $2 photos or one of our Mascot Premiums are a few of the ways to off-set or totally recoup the cost of your costume.
As always, give us a call. We have seen many very clever and effective fundraising efforts from our customers and we're more than happy to share these and to brainstorm funding solutions for your organization.
