I wanted to share my previous sponsorship proposal template and examples as I know working from a template makes the process a lot easier!
All the templates I share in this post were successful and led to me getting the funding I was looking for.

Sponsorship proposal template looking for funding to hike across Jordan’s desert: Hike Jordan Sponsorship Pack
Kicking the States
Sponsorship proposal template looking for funding to kick scoot the length of the USA: Kicking the States Sponsorship pack
I also produced a 1-page proposal which worked really well when looking for gear sponsorship or booking talks. You can view that one here: Kicking the States
Here are a few other examples that I found on the web. Some good and some bad but there are ideas to be taken from all of them….
- (check out the ‘download sponsorship pack’ at the bottom of the page) 737 Challenge
- The Blue Rower
- Everest World Record
- Atlantic Seaman
- Golden Arch Expedition
- North Pole
Remember: Be original!
While it is great to use these examples when putting your own proposal together, I also think it is really important to be original. Really there are no rules when it comes to sponsorship proposals – it just comes down explaining what you are doing and why you should work together.
Play to your strengths and demonstrate what you are good at. If you are a top filmmaker then why not put your proposal in film form. This is how you stand out from the crowd!
