Advocates for Senior Issues (AFSI) offers sponsorship opportunities to local organizations wanting to promote their product or service while supporting AFSI’s mission of advancing the well-being of older adults. Sponsorship, along with annual membership dues, is AFSI’s main source of income, and is essential in supporting the group to continue its work.
Four sponsorship levels are available, with various levels of exposure to AFSI members and guests through monthly newsletters, printed brochures, and links on the website. Monthly newsletters are sent to more than 350 individuals, 2,000 printed brochures are distributed each year around the community, and the web site continues to gain visibility among members and the general public.
You may mail your completed membership or sponsorship form and payment to the address below, or bring it with you to the next meeting. *Checks to be made out to Area Agency on Aging of Western Michigan or AAAWM
