Methods of Supporting the LVDA
The Lehigh Valley Dressage Association (LVDA), is dedicated to promoting the Equestrian sport of Dressage in Eastern Pennsylvania and Western New Jersey, by organizing and conducting Dressage competitions, clinics and educational lectures. These activities are designed to help improve the skills of participants who are interested in advancing up the levels of dressage as well as better prepare themselves for regional and national competitions.
The overall costs involved in organizing and holding each of these events can be quite expensive. The entry fees that LVDA collects typically only cover a portion of each event's costs. The remaining costs are covered by the LVDA with funds raised through our sponsorship Program, donations and other fundraising activities.
SPONSORSHIP PROGRAMS - Sponsorship is a great way to advertise your business while showing support of dressage and your dressage association. Sponsorship increases LVDA's ability to offer affordable educational events, competitions and scholarship opportunities to our members and non-members interested in the sport of dressage. Businesses and individuals can become a Sponsor of the LVDA and receive exposure on our website, at local and regional dressage competitions, clinics & lectures, and in our newsletter "The LVDA CenterLine".
We currently have two Sponsorship Programs:
LVDA Club Sponsorships - Funds distributed to multiple programs benefiting all members
Youth Development Program Sponsorships - Funds used for the Youth Development Program Activities & events benefiting our young riders.
The LVDA accepts monetary donations of any amount, as well as donations of goods or services. Goods and services are used to generate funds via silent auctions, our Giving Back program, and raffles. All funds raised through these donations, are used to cover the expenses involved with providing the various clinics, lectures, show competitions, and scholarships.
