Team Sponsorship

Valley Leagues greatly appreciates the financial support we've received from our sponsors!. Whether you're giving out of the goodness of your heart or because you want the basketball team running around with your business's name on the front of their jerseys, you might also be in for a reward from Uncle Sam on your taxes.

Why Sponsor

When you sponsor a basketball team, getting your name on the back or front of the jerseys turns your good deed into an advertising expense. Instead of the money being simply a donation to a nonprofit organization, you're getting something in return for your business: public exposure. As the players run around in the court, all the other players and or parents get to see "Joe's Pizza" as they're debating where to eat after the game.

Sponsorship Over Donations

Using a sponsorship rather than a charitable donation to the league means you get to write off the costs as a business expense rather than a charitable donation. When you work as a sole proprietor or partner, that means the costs come out of your business income, which means lowering your self-employment taxes as well as your income taxes. Charitable donations only lower your income taxes and they're only available if you itemize your deductions.

Other Advantages

Instead of sponsoring a team you can sponsor Valley Leagues. By sponsoring Valley Leagues we will create web banner’s and or ad’s about your business and place them on our webpage and social media pages at no cost to you. Don't have a design? No need to worry, Valley Leagues has its own in house Web and Graphic Designer that will create your banner’s and ad’s or even a free starter webpage for your company at no cost to you or your company. 

Tax Reporting

If you're claiming a business expense, it goes on Schedule C, line 8, as an advertising expense. This reduces your business income on the form. Since only your net profit carries over to your income tax return, there's no need to deduct it again on your Form 1040. If you're claiming a charitable contribution, that goes on line 16 of Schedule A, the list of itemized deductions. It gets combined with your other itemized deductions for the year and replaces your standard deduction on line 40 of Form 1040.
