Southern Wake Academy’s Office of Development is excited to offer our Corporate Partners Program to help fund our top priorities while offering advertising and recognition opportunities to our sponsors.
Our Corporate Sponsor’s will make a significant difference to SWA, as we direct sponsor fees toward enrichment and extracurricular programs, including technology, athletics, tutorial, transportation, and cultural arts, impacting our students and their teachers. Our expectations are to maintain a long-term partnership, that is mutually beneficial to your organization and our school.
Our Corporate Partners Program will not only show your generous support for SWA, it will advertise your business through print and web-based marketing initiatives, signage, informational seminars, and title events. Our business partnerships extend beyond marketing opportunities; it opens our doors for senior internships, job shadows, and community service programs, as they are the backbone of our school’s mission. SWA is committed to offering a partnership program that will support and build your business, and allow us to provide the necessary tools and resources that our students need and deserve.
SWA is offering a choice of four unique Tier Levels to promote your business to our valued constituents that are closely associated to our school-wide community, including our loyal families, administration, teachers, students, board of directors, Friends of SWA, and investors from our local community. Each of these tiers are correlated to market visibility, advertising, and recognition rights to promote your business.
Our turnkey program offers our sponsors the opportunity to advertise their business for much less than conventional marketing methods – newspaper, internet, radio, and direct mail. Our approach is focused on promoting your brand, as we understand the benefits of building awareness and visibility to attract prospective customers or clients. In addition to these advantages, there are more reasons to sponsor SWA:
- Opportunity to offer promotions and special pricing to SWA students and their families.
- Sponsors that opted for a gym sign, will benefit from our well-attended and sold-out home games.
- Positive public relations due to your strong support of a public school.
- Credibility and trust are extended to our sponsors when you become a SWA Corporate Sponsor.
- SWA accepts specific types of In-kind contributions in lieu of sponsorship fees.
To learn more about our advertising and recognition options associated to each Tier Level, and their corresponding sponsorship fees, please see these forms included below and in our SWA Sponsor Kit:

SWA Corporate Sponsors tax incentives:
Please remember that your Corporate Sponsor fees are tax deductible to the maximum extent allowed by law, because Southern Wake Academy is designated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization by the IRS. All corporate sponsors receive a Donor Receipt to verify your participation and sponsor fees.
Friends of SWA offer:
Take advantage of supporting our school by joining Friends of SWA for a minimum donation.

Our objective is to maintain an open door with our local business community.
