Commercial Sponsorship & Advertising

How can the local community and businesses help the Quality of Life on Eielson?

Eielson AFB Force Support Squadron host numerous events that promote morale and enhance the quality of life for attendees. These events offer sponsors and advertisers multiple opportunities to achieve recognition, awareness, and brand loyalty among families, participants, and spectators from both Eielson AFB and the surrounding community.

As the Eielson Commercial Sponsorship Coordinator, I invite you to partner with us and take your company’s advertising to the next level. Our sponsorship packages and advertising rates allow you to reach your target market in creative ways that produce real results. At the events, sponsors are encouraged to engage with the community and demonstrate their products. If going to events is not feasible, our advertising options on base are numerous and effective.

When you decide to partner with Eielson FSS, we discuss your unique objectives and tailor our services to fit your exact needs and priorities. We are extremely appreciative for any support from local businesses and are so thrilled that this program allows us the opportunity to give you some tangible benefits in return for your investment in us.

Sincerely,
Sophie Heckert
Commercial Sponsorship Coordinator
