Every year, Saint Katherine needs individuals, families, and businesses to donate to or become sponsors of the festival. Financial and in-kind donations of any value are needed and appreciated. Certain levels of donation are gratefully recognized. Saint Katherine Greek Orthodox Church is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
As the major, annual, fundraising event for our Church, the "Weekend in Greece" festival enables her to minister to the surrounding Elk Grove and greater Sacramento communities, as well as her parishioners and their families. Saint Katherine not only provides a sacred place of worship and support, but also contributes to and assists the community and those in need.
The Saint Katherine community has helped the Elk Grove Community Assistance Network, WIND Youth Services (helping homeless youth in Sacramento), the Stockton Shelter for the Homeless, and the Kids 'n' Cancer Ministry of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of San Francisco. In addition, we also help national organizations such as the Ronald McDonald House and international efforts such as The Hogar Rafael Ayau Orphanage, an orphanage in Guatemala City's toughest neighborhood. We participate in these various efforts through such activities as collecting food, clothing, and blankets, volunteer services, and financial support. Moreover, through ministries such as our Philoptochos Society, we directly aid the poor, the sick, and the elderly.
Your donation to our festival would support the Church's Christian ministry to the Elk Grove and greater Sacramento communities, and to her parishioners.
By supporting the "Weekend in Greece" festival, you, your family, or business is giving back to the community. Such giving helps the community as a whole to thrive, and in the end, benefits the giver as well. Besides knowing you are helping the community, you also gain an opportunity for recognition and visibility.
Individuals, families, or businesses donating $150 or more qualify as Sponsors.
To show our gratitude, all qualifying Sponsors are listed in the Festival Events flyer or brochure (provided during the festival). Also, your name or business can be part of our social media promotions.
Those individuals, families, or businesses generously donating $500 or more become Featured Sponsors and receive additional benefits.
Featured Sponsors have the opportunity to have their name or logo displayed on our Featured Sponsors festival banner, posted on our web site, and prominently placed on our Festival Events flyer or brochure.
