We are grateful for the wide-ranging financial support for CFTC that comes from businesses, churches, non-profits and individuals. To date, $30,600.00 has been received toward our budget of $40,000.00--an astonishingly low number for a free event for over ten thousand people thanks to the generosity of our community and the grace of God.

To date, close to 100 businesses have contributed financially or through in-kind donations to CFTC2016!

Truly, Christmas for the City would not happen without the heart and sweat equity of so many. While the vast majority of expenses for these events are absorbed through volunteer hours and individual donations, there are some larger, fixed costs for which we rely on the support of sponsors.

As you plan your year, would you consider making CFTC a part of your budget? Contact Chuck Spong directly if you would like to pledge toward our projected budget of $40,000 to create a meaningful Christmas experience for our whole community: serve@loveoutloudws.com or (336) 747-3067.

There are three levels of sponsorships:

  • SPONSOR—Contributions of $100-999: your organization’s name on the multi-sponsor banner and in the printed program
  • MAJOR SPONSOR—Contributions of $1,000-4,999: all of the above plus your organization’s name & logo on large sponsor banners prominently displayed throughout the Benton Convention Center
  • PREMIERE SPONSOR—Contributions of $5,000 or greater: all of the above plus acknowledgements from the main stage throughout the night.

We hope you’ll consider making a tax-exempt contribution to Christmas for the City to ensure everyone in our community has a meaningful experience this holiday season. For more information, contact Chuck Spong, CFTC executive director, at (336) 747-3067 or serve@loveoutloudws.com.

We ended in the black for CFTC2015!!! After all expenses and donations cleared, the CFTC restricted fund had a balance of $194.37, a HUGE, ONLY-GOD kind of miracle!
