Sponsor Benefits

Our Sponsors comprise a select group of community minded business leaders in each town in which we install our program. 

 - Participation in the program is by invitation only.  
 - We work only with “referrals” to ensure that harmony exists between our sponsors.
 - Prospective sponsors are recommended to us by businesses already participating on our program.
 - We limit the number of sponsors to eight per program, with six being the average.

Sponsors derive many direct and indirect benefits from the program:

  • They are able to provide all the bereaved families in their community with a personalized copy of one of our bereavement volumes.
  • They are perpetually identified on the Sponsors page inside the volume as making this lasting keepsake available to the family.
  • Our sponsors are not involved in any details; everything is handled directly by the funeral homes and Contemporary Concepts.
  • The price per family is less than that of an appropriate “Sympathy” card.
  • The price of the program is guaranteed regardless of the number of bereavements in the community.
  • Nearly seventy-five percent of the families who receive the service contact our sponsors by cards, letters, telephone calls or personal visits to express appreciation for their thoughtfulness.
  • The program enhances their good image in the community.
  • It supports existing friends in the community and fosters new relationships.
  • It identifies each sponsor as a caring member of the community.
  • It allows the sponsors an opportunity to reciprocate in a meaningful way to the community that has provided them support.
