Be One of the WitchsFest USA Sponsors

Dear SPONSOR TO BE,                                                                                   

          The New York City Wiccan Family Temple invites you to become a sponsor for our annual WitchsFest USA to benefit the Wiccan Family Temple’s building fund.                                                                                                                                     

          The primary source of funding for WitchsFest USA is from sponsors such as you. WitchsFest USA receives no governmental funding. This exciting event will be held on Saturday, July 11th, 2015 in ASTOR PLACE New York City between Broadway and Lafayette Streets 11am to 5pm. WitchsFest USA is an off-shoot from Witchfest International and many other pagan festivals across the US, and like our forebearers, WitchsFest USA aims to bring together those who follow and/or are interested in paganism,  and the many related interests. WitchsFest USA will feature a large vendor market, workshops, a pagan panel, local pagan groups and live entertainment.

The purpose of WitchsFest USA is first and foremost to raise funds to purchase property to house the Wiccan Family Temple within New York City. This place would be where pagans of all traditions can have space of their own to meet, learn, share and celebrate. As you may or may not be aware, the Wiccan Family Temple has provided open circles for both the monthly full moon celebrations as well as the eight seasonal sabbat rituals. The Wiccan Family Temple also provides a series of classes set up in three degrees for those wanting to learn specifically about wicca and paganism in general. The Wiccan Family Temple has been offering these services since 2005. The funds provided would aid us in providing a permanent space with classrooms as well as space for rituals. We would also like to share our space with other local groups so that they may have the same. If you have not already, please find more specific information on sponsorship packages page. Your sponsorship will help assure the success of WitchsFest USA. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to speaking with you at your earliest convenience. (We are registered with the Attorney Generals office of the State of New York Charities Bureau as a Non-profit Religious Corporation and awaiting our 501c3).

Sincerely, Lashette Williams Sponsorship Coordinator
