A few of my friends and I are trying to start an all brass band in our city. It's in the very beginning stages, and we need sponsors badly. We need drums, several brass instruments, and a lot of things that are necessary for a brass band to have. What our band director said we need to do was get different companies to sponsor us, especially local music companies. However, we are totally unsure about how we should go about doing this. So, if anyone could tell me the basics of what a sponsorship request should have, I would love them forever. Thanks!
