Proposals which have been juried into NEBRASKA by HEART will then be viewed by individuals, organizations and businesses for possible Sponsorship.  A sponsorship is $3000 per proposed design.  This will cover the cost of manufacturing the sculpture/base, provide the Artist with a materials stipend ($500) and assist Lead Up (formerly Hope College Center- Boys Hope Girls Hope) and the Sadie Dog Fund with Project expenses.

NOTE:  The Project Committee will work to find Sponsors (Patrons) for the Artists.  Artists may also assist in finding their own Sponsor (Patron).

DEFINITION of a Sponsor (Patron) – The $3000 sponsorship does not mean the Sponsor (Patron) will ultimately own the full-size Heart sculpture.  Rather, a Sponsor (Patron) acts much like the Artist’s benefactor by supporting the Project and ultimately allowing the Artist to transfer their proposed design onto a 6-foot Heart.

The Sponsor/Patron will also be a part of the decision-making process regarding placement for the May 1 – Mid October, 2017, exhibition period.  In addition, the Sponsor (Patron) will receive credit for their generosity on the Heart’s plaque and be noted in any written materials about the Project – press releases, brochures, book, etc.
