Finding Sponsors For Wellness-Focused Events

Hi everyone,

I'm the Founder of Witted Roots, a mental health + emotional wellness platform for millennial women of color, rooted in themes of self-reflection and vulnerability.

We've only operated virtually so far, but I have been working towards planning our first series of IRL Sessions in May (Mental Health Awareness Month) and July (BIPOC Mental Health Awareness Month) in the NYC area.

I know that to really maximize the impact that we can make, we need funding and sponsorship, but I'm feeling a bit out of depth with that at the moment.

Does anyone have experience securing sponsorship for events efficiently, and have any tips or resources they wouldn't mind sharing (like, what's the best way to reach out and to who? how can I ensure that it's a mutually-beneficial arrangement? etc.)? I would really appreciate the help.
