Our Chess in Schools - Our Global Future promotional booklet has a couple of pages devoted to sponsors and sponsorshhip.
Sponsors like to see returns. Just take a look at the number of 'page views' that Rosneft got from their sponsorship.
Looking for local sponsors in your own country? Our simple guide to sponsorship is part of the CiS Handbook (click the Documents link on the left). Even if you don't understand Slovenian, you may find their sponsorship leaflet gives you some useful ideas as well (it's easy to understand the ideas behind the various headings). [update 2012.0804]
We are pleased to welcome our first ever global sponsor of CiS. Rosneft, 75% state owned, is the leader of Russia’s petroleum industry, and ranks among the world’s top publicly traded oil and gas companies. The Company is primarily engaged in exploration and production of hydrocarbons, production of petroleum products and petrochemicals, and marketing of outputs.
