Commercial Sponsorship and Advertising

Loyalty, brand recognition, interaction with the military community and return on investment is what we can offer to you and your brand. A relationship with Presidio of Monterey Family and MWR will be long lasting and Army Strong.

Installation/Population Information

The Presidio of Monterey (POM) is home to a diverse military community that includes service members of all military branches — Army, Navy, Marines, and Air Force. The population is comprised of students who attend foreign language and cultural education classes at the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center (DLIFLC).

POM’s student base is comprised of approximately 3,500 people. Only Armed Forces members or approved sponsored individuals of other government agencies can attend the DLIFLC. In addition to service members, the community consists of family members, retirees, and Department of Defense civilians, totaling roughly 12,000-plus individuals.

The number of service members is steadily growing and our troops are always rotating. Think about this great opportunity for your business. The target audience is well-defined and the population refreshes frequently. Your product will always remain new and exciting to our community members.

What is Commercial Sponsorship?

Commercial Sponsorship offers the chance to present your company's message in a variety of creative ways. Commercial sponsorship gives your business access to our Army community. Your participation not only results in brand recognition, it also fosters goodwill among this highly-receptive market. A partnership with Presidio of Monterey Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation (Family and MWR) will expose your programs, events and services to an attentive audience. All activities and events operated by Family and MWR are eligible for sponsorship support.

Commercial sponsorship is the financial or in-kind support of an Family and MWR program or activity, used primarily to achieve specified business goals. According to IEG's Complete Guide to Sponsorship, "Sponsorship should not be confused with advertising. Advertising is considered a quantitative medium, whereas sponsorship is considered a qualitative medium. It promotes a company in association with the sponsee." Family and MWR sponsorship allows you to reach a specifically-targeted military market.

Commercial Sponsorship Opportunities

Single Events
We have a wide variety of events scheduled throughout the year — from celebrating Military Children to boat dives with our installation SCUBA dive club. Our audience is diverse and offers many opportunities to reach the Monterey military community. Other events include the Family Fun Fitness Festival, the Festival of the Arts, the Mud Run, quarterly golf tournaments, bowling challenges and many more.

Event Packages
For a higher level of recognition and exposure, we offer three high-level sponsorship packages that offer more involvement and presence than single event sponsorship.  Our annual Gold, Silver, and Bronze level sponsorship packages guarantee you brand recognition with Family and MWR throughout the entire year. Each Gold, Silver, and Bronze level sponsorship package is fully customized to your goals and expectations.

The Family and MWR Marketing Department is available at your convenience to develop the right commercial sponsorship solution for your business.
