NAGICO Sponsorship Policy

Our sponsorship policy gives guidance on what we can and cannot support in terms of the project itself and the organizations involved. Please read this before making an application for sponsorship.

Sponsorship is "the payment of a fee or payment in kind by a company in return for the rights to a public association with an activity, item, person or property for mutual commercial benefit".

Sponsorship is a business agreement, not a gift. Sponsorship is not a donation with nothing in return, or a discount for normal goods or services.

We will:

• Consider all sponsorship requests in an open and even-handed way and measure the request against our sponsorship evaluation criteria
• Only consider sponsorship agreements with organizations whose products, services and values align with the strategic objectives and values of NAGICO
• Consider the other organizations involved if there is to be more than one sponsor and in particular how other sponsors 'fit' with NAGICO
• Require evidence of how sponsorship income is used

Sponsorship evaluation criteria
Sponsorship proposals are evaluated against five general criteria. These criteria have been developed to ensure that NAGICO establishes sponsorship relationships that will mutually benefit NAGICO and the receiving organization.

Proposals are evaluated for:
1. Tangible benefits associated with the partnership.
2. Opportunity to create long-term value.
3. Ability to reach targeted audiences and build relationships.
4. Positive exposure for the NAGICO brand.
5. Potential for long-term, sustainable partnership or relationship.

Ineligible Activities
We regret that we are unable to support the following types of activities because they do not meet the criteria NAGICO set forth in our corporate sponsorship program.

• Any sponsorship in association with tobacco or alcohol
• Any sponsorship in association with Auto Racing, Fighting Sports (Boxing, Mixed Martial Arts etc) and Daredevil Sports.
• Sponsoring of political candidates, organizations or pressure groups.
• Sponsoring of government organizations
• Sponsoring of religious organizations
Marketing & Communications Department
• Sponsoring of events in areas where there is no NAGICO office or Agent.
• Sponsoring of any organization which is in legal or financial conflict with NAGICO
• Requests that benefit an individual person or family.
We would require any sponsored project to:
• Display the NAGICO brand on any legal publicity – this includes brochures, advertising, website,
exhibition materials, signage, information packs, etc – but must be approved by NAGICO before
publication
• Mention NAGICO in all press releases and media activity
• Make available materials or reports produced as part of the project to NAGICO
• Showcase our products and services. We would expect exhibition space at any event we sponsor
• To provide a certain number of free tickets for NAGICO's management & staff to attend
Timing
• Proposals are reviewed on a regular basis. The requesting organization should hear from NAGICO
within two to four weeks of receipt of the inquiry. If there is a need for additional information,
NAGICO will contact the organization directly.
• Applicants must allow 3 months to 6 months between application and the sponsored event to
provide time for negotiating agreements and to enable NAGICO to appropriately plan our
participation.
