Tourism Sponsorship Programs & Resources

Local Resources

Tour Stafford Sponsorship Funding Program: Stafford County Department of Economic Development and Tourism (ED&T) provides sponsorship funding to nonprofit and profit organizations and businesses. A sponsorship allows ED&T to provide materials, advertise, or otherwise promote Stafford County. Sponsorships require clear and concise agreement and contracted rules on the use of the Tour Stafford logo, and logo placement in marketing materials, websites, or social media outlets. Each organization may apply for only one sponsorship per fiscal year (July 1 to June 30), however when partnering with other organizations to create a unique event, more than one application may be accepted. Priority is given to events or marketing efforts that promote out-of-county visitation and reach an audience broader than the Stafford region. The Tour Stafford Sponsorship Funding Program will launch in February 2022. Check back here for details.
