Dear Sir or Madam:

Re:      Request for Sponsorship for the 38th  Annual Kamloopa Powwow
           Charitable Organization No. 87546 0610 RR0001

The Kamloopa Powwow Society (“KPS”) is proudly organizing our 38th Annual Kamloopa Powwow scheduled for August 4 – 6, 2017.  We have been privileged to host visitors from across North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.  Our event attracts approximately 15,000-20,000 spectators over the course of the weekend, including approximately 500 dancers, 200 drummers, and event staff.

The KPS is a non-profit organization who encourages the continuation and understanding of the First Nation Culture.  Through showcasing First Nations’ song, dance and native arts, our event promotes goodwill, multiculturalism, and a greater level of cross-cultural understanding. More important, our event has become a success through the hard work and commitment of our committee, head staff, drummers, arts & crafts vendors, volunteers and sponsors.

As a part of maintaining the continued success of this event, we are seeking donations to assist with the operational costs.  We would greatly value your support this year; donations can be made through general donation or by sponsoring a particular category. Find enclosed KPS “Levels of Donations” which outlines the various levels of sponsorship that are available to you. Should you choose to donate, please forward a cheque payable to:
