Sponsor agreements

Due to the current global health emergency, we strongly encourage you to consider online events instead of in-person in 2020. For more information, please refer to our online events handbook.

Most sponsors will not need a sponsor agreement, but there are some cases when one is required:
– If the sponsorship package is an amount higher of $10k
– If it’s a legal requirement of the sponsor’s country (like the case of SiteGround)

In those cases, please follow these steps to create a sponsor agreement (only create the agreement for those sponsorships where one of the two cases above apply):

1) Go to your WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. site’s dashboard and click on the menu: ‘Docs’

2) Select “Sponsorship Agreement” on the dropdown and click on the blue button “Next” (see image above)

3) Fill in all the fields required for creating the agreement (ask the sponsor to provide their details for the first three fields), and click on the blue button “Download PDF”

4) Open the PDF and make sure all details are correct, send it via email to support@wordcamp.org requesting a signature from a member of the Global Community Team with permission to sign on behalf of WordPress Community Support PBC (WPCS)

5) As soon as you receive the agreement signed by WPCS, send it to the sponsor requesting signature

6) Upload the signed sponsorship agreement on Budget > Sponsor Invoices > following this quick tutorial

And all done! 🙂
