Prospective Sponsors: Information About XC Oregon
Since 1998, one of the most successful adult XC ski club programs in North American history, XC Oregon represents an excellent sponsorship vehicle for businesses and a fantastic charitable outlet for planned tax-exempt gifts.
The "best fit" for sponsors are businesses interested in a strong presence in the Pacific Northwest endurance sport and active outdoor health demographic. Individual racers from our program take on the best of the U.S. and the world every year, but the bulk of all our race starts (and thus highest promotional return) is in the heart of the Pacific Northwest focusing on Oregon, Washington, Idaho, California, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, British Columbia, and Alberta.
Traditionally XC Oregon skiers as a group have averaged over 200 race starts and over 50 podium finishes every year in events ranging from local citizen races to the World Cup. Notably, sponsorship with XC Oregon stretches to the boundaries of the Cascade Mountain snow season which means we keep delivering on-snow exposure from November thru June.
Although obviously XC ski races are the priority in the winter, XC Oregon athletes also annually record numerous podium and top ten finishes in the dryland months ranging from multi-sport races to cycling and running events. This exposure also spills over to provided added value for team sponsors as our top athletes are recognized as members of XC Oregon no matter what sport they are doing.
As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, donations to XC Oregon are tax deductible to the fullest extent the law allows. Unlike virtually any other non-profit sport program you can find, we guarantee that no more than 50% of any donation will be put towards staffing or office expenses for the program.
