Sponsorship Opportunities

Gemstone Climbing Center opened its doors November 2017 and has quickly had a positive impact on the youth in the Magic Valley. Gemstone announces its new partnership with United Way of South-Central Idaho to create a “Community School” for area children and families. This is an opportunity for scholarship programs to provide financial assistance for classes (climbing, obstacle course racing, yoga), youth day camps, or Gemstone memberships. This program will also support Gemstone and United Way’s mission to provide after-school activities to community schools with a partnership with the YMCA. Area businesses and community members are welcomed to financially support, through a tax-deductible United Way donation, these non-traditional programs to continue to offer opportunities for youth and families.

Opportunities to Contribute:

Business Banners

Inside our gym we have patrons moving from the ground level to the ceiling. We have several convenient locations for banners to be hung in our facility on a 6-month or 1-year contract. Each banner will have a maximum allowable space of 3’x6’. Businesses shall provide Gemstone with their banner of choice and Gemstone will return the banner to the business when their contract expires.

As the funds from these banners will be used for funding eligible participants, we are asking that the graphics include mention of “youth”, “community”, “inclusion”, and other power words to describe the Company’s ambitions to provide opportunities for people in the Magic Valley. We also ask that the background include some reference to climbing, yoga, fitness, or outdoors. This will ensure that the facility will maintain a strong focus on overall health.

Auto-Belay Sponsorship

The quickest and easiest method to climb is using our Auto Belays. These are devices that allow the climber to climb without having a belayer. First timers use them before they learn how to use the ropes and belay each other. Members use them as quick workouts to climb by themselves. Gemstone operates between 8-9 auto-belays depending on the rotation of scheduled maintenance. They are the most popular feature on our tall walls because of their versatility. Each Auto-Belay location has between 2-3 routes to climb with varying levels of difficulty to serve all/most patrons. Auto-Belay routes are changed every 4 weeks, thus sponsorship of that Auto-Belay would last 4 weeks.
What’s Included:

• 12”x12” maximum business banner placed at the top of the Auto-Belay.
• Each route on the Auto-Belay will be named by a theme of your business.

Example: You own a pizza company. We could name the routes “Spicy Meatball”, “Combination Nation”, or “Veggie Delight”. We could have some fun with it as naming routes is always entertaining and really highlight certain movements encountered.
Cost:
• $135/month = Sponsorship of 1 child to participate in a climbing class or week-long summer camp!
