Swartz Creek Schools

APP Sponsorship Program

We Are Looking for Business Sponsors from the SC Community

We want to partner with businesses in our community to help support the cost of this new APP by giving businesses the opportunity to reach thousands of people through their mobile devices.


We have three levels of sponsorship, each with a different annual cost and a different level of visibility on the APP.

What is an APP?

"App" is a shortened name for "application", referring to a software application, and usually is used in reference to mobile devices, such as iphones, android phones, ipads, kindles, and the like.


Mobile apps extend the reach and productivity of your business or organization.


Swartz Creek Schools are creating mobile APPS for all of our schools, to increase our communication and engagement with families and the community. Parents, students, staff and community members will be able to access, interact with, and communicate with our schools in many new ways through our APP, no matter the time or place, with any mobile device.

Platinum Level Sponsors

Platinum level sponsors will have their own icon and business name on the APP like in the screen shots above. Imagine that your business would appear as a button on the APP, easily accessible to over 4000 students, parents, staff and community members who download our free school APPS.


When your button is pressed, it opens to a page that asks people to please visit your business, explaining that you are a platinum level sponsor of Swartz Creek Community Schools APP program. We can add any or all of the following information:


Photo - photo of your store front or business image or icon

Phone Number - directly calls your business from their smart phone

Location - shows your address on a map within their mobile device so they can easily find you

Website - links out to your business website, online menus or catalogs, etc.

Explanation - can be a brief description of the products or services you offer, your business hours, or whatever you would like


Platinum Level Sponsors pay $250 annually.

Gold Level Sponsors

Gold level sponsors will also have:

their own icon and business name on the APP, which will directly open your business phone number with the option for the person to hit call and directly connect via their smartphone.


This is ideal for businesses whose customers typically just want a phone number at their fingertips.


Gold Level Sponsors pay $150 annually.

Silver level Sponsors

Silver level sponsors will have their business information listed in a catalog along with other sponsors under a general "sponsors" button on the APP. Businesses will be placed in categories such as restaurants, services, and retail. Your business name will be listed and when pressed, will open to your photo, phone, email, and website.


Silver level sponsors pay $50 annually.
