Only 11 Local Businesses or Individuals Can be “Official Sponsors” of the Greene County Extension Program

For the first time in 100 years, Greene County Extension is offering “official sponsorship” opportunities to a limited number of businesses.

“We are selling only 11 of these exclusive marketing opportunities at a price of $6,000,” said David Burton, country program director for Greene County Extension. “This is an excellent marketing opportunity that brings recognition to the sponsor and support to the local extension office.”

Greene County Extension will invest in giving media recognition to official sponsors in a number of different ways. This is a program that might even be expanded with the help of media partners.

In addition to cross-promotional efforts, the Greene County Extension office will also work closely with official sponsors on trainings and other educational events that would benefit their employees.

Sponsors can use the Greene County Extension logo and name (along with the statement “official sponsor of”) in advertisements, store, website, mailers, billboards, store signage, etc. for 12 months. There is no other way to get access to the use of this logo in advertisements.

“This sponsorship effort is necessary because of the 90% budget cut we received from the County Commission,” said Burton. “But, at the same time our office operations budget is being cut, the demand for our services is increasing. We need sponsors in order to continue reaching county residents with our research-based educational programs and information.”

For more information on how you can participate, contact David Burton at (417) 881-8909 or by email at Information can also be found on the Greene County Extension website under the “corporate sponsorships” tab.
