I think this query comes under this community but let me know if it is better suited elsewhere.
How should I go about asking my employer for sponsorship for an event being run by a small amateur organisation that I am a member of?
I work full time for a small, well funded, tech startup. We have less than 50 employees. We are less than a year old and everyone knows everyone in both of our offices. I feel I have a good rapport with my superiors and all colleagues in general.
The value of the sponsorship is very small, anything from €25 - €100. The event that they are sponsoring is run over one day and is family friendly. The event has absolutely no relevance to what the company do. The company will gain very little from the sponsorship, in fact probably nothing other than supporting a club that I am member of.
How should I ask for such sponsorship, who should I be asking and via what method? Or, should I be asking in the first place? I am not worried about being rejected just about possibly going about it the wrong way. Thanks.
