Dear Sponsors and Members of the community,

The University of Iowa Dance Marathon would not be what it is today without the help of local and national sponsors. Sponsors have the chance to be an integral part of the largest student-run philanthropy on the University of Iowa campus. These sponsors not only benefit the cause of Dance Marathon, but Dance Marathon benefits local and national companies by granting exposure and connection to an amazing organization.

Dance Marathon at the University of Iowa is more than a weekend event, it is a yearlong fundraising effort and celebration for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Throughout the year, over 3,000 University of Iowa students and local community members participate in different events put on by our very generous sponsors to get the word out about Dance Marathon and supporting those at our local children's hospital, the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital. At each of these sponsored events, Dance Marathon participants are exposed to our mission, as well as the products and services of those who support us, only increasing their own business.

If your company is looking to get involved with generous students, campus leaders, and a philanthropic community that wants to help take care of those in need, The University of Iowa Dance Marathon is a great match for your company. We will work tirelessly to ensure a mutually beneficial partnership that fits Dance Marathon’s mission and your business model.

For more information on how to become a sponsor, or to donate, send an email to DM-Sponsorship@uiowa.edu. You can view our sponsorship packet here: Dance Marathon 26 Sponsorship Packet.

Thank you,

Matt Kolarczyk
Sponsorship Director, Dance Marathon 26
