What is Sponsorship? How is it different from a donation?
“Sponsorship” typically means a person or entity provides the City with financial support for an activity, City program or City facility, typically in exchange for the City providing more than nominal recognition of that financial support. This overt recognition distinguishes a sponsorship from a donation. Financial assistance provided by a sponsor may consist of cash and/or in-kind contributions.

How much does it cost?
There are varying levels and types of sponsorship across different City of Hutto departments and activities. For example, a family or business might sponsor and name a study room in the new public library. A local business might sponsor a Hutto Parks and Recreation sports league or team, and would be recognized on t-shirts and event signage relating to that team or league. Sponsorship levels are discussed more in detail on each page.
What do I get at each level?
Sponsorship recognition will vary depending on the level of sponsorship. 
What are the City’s responsibilities regarding the sponsored event or item?
The City has both legal and procedural obligations to sponsors. All revenue, products, donations, sponsorships, and services received from donors and sponsors by the City of Hutto, shall be recorded and maintained.
A record of all sponsorships and donations including name, type, contact name if a company, amount, and disposition of sponsorship shall be kept up-to-date and accurate by both the receiving department and the Finance Department according to the City’s Donation, Grant, Sponsorship & Fundraising Policy.
Donations or sponsorships paid for with a monetary contribution will not be paid to staff in cash unless approved, in advance, by the Department Director and receipt of cash is properly documented.
Disclaimers
Any accepted donation or sponsorship which would obligate the City to enter into a service or procurement agreement will be reviewed under the City procurement process.
The City encourages donations of materials with the understanding that such items have a useful life, and that the City assumes no responsibility for replacement or upkeep. Once a donation is accepted, it becomes City property and the City may maintain, replace or dispose of the item unless the donation is explicitly restricted.
The City cannot guarantee the tax deductibility of a donation but may provide the donating party with a letter of acknowledgment and a statement of the City’s intended use.
City employees who have primary responsibility for the procurement of services, supplies, materials, and equipment or Public Works and/or Finance Departments, should not engage in solicitation of donations or sponsorships.
