Marian House Sponsor-A-Day Program
To Sponsor-A-Day call 719-866-6427
The Marian House Sponsor a Day Program (MSP) enables businesses, churches, schools, fraternal organizations, boards of directors, groups, families, and individuals to sponsor the meals served at the Marian House Soup Kitchen for a specific day. The day can be sponsored or designated in honor of an entity such as an individual, organization, business, etc., by pairing the sponsorship with a meaningful day or anniversary.
The benefits to Marian House are simple: generate revenue to cover meal cost, allowing for funds for occasional food shortages, and expansion of Marian House programs.
For sponsors, the program not only provides a very low cost per thousand (CPM), a desired marketing outcome in any advertising program, it also enables sponsors to be seen as a caring community supporter: a business with a conscious.
- A sponsorship costs $1,500 per day. Sponsors benefit by full recognition with their name on the sponsorship sign in front of the Marian House Soup Kitchen, located on Bijou Street at the entrance and exit of downtown Colorado Springs. Sponsors are also recognized through our internal print publications and all of our digital media outlets (including our website, Facebook page and Twitter account). Ultimately, the total program impressions are estimated at 129,000 impressions at $11.62 CPM.
A sponsorship is eligible for the 25% Colorado State Tax Credit through El Paso County Enterprise Zone. Sponsors also have the opportunity to volunteer on the day of their sponsorship. Sponsors may choose to designate their day on an important holiday, a special anniversary, or in honor of a loved one.

Value as a Caring Community Partner: Priceless!
Not all individuals or business can readily afford to donate $1,500 to a cause that they are passionate about. Catholic Charities encourages interested groups to contact us about using crowd-funding to Sponsor-A-Day at the Marian House. Crowd Funding is a campaigning method typically used to generate funds for a special interest. Essentially, by creating interest in the program, large groups of people can Sponsor-A-Day at the Marian House. Crowd Funding is ideal for large organizations, churches, military groups, schools,etc. where individuals want to share the cost*. This method can be used as an education tool about charity with the opportunity to raise the money as a group and also volunteer at the Marian House. Your group can choose a date to have the funds raised by to celebrate a particular date or Catholic Charities will chose a date once the funded amount has been reached. If you are interested in participating in a sponsorship via Crowd Funding, please contact us (719-866-6427) for more information.
*If any individual contributes $250 or more, they are eligible for the Enterprise Zone Tax Credit
