Discuss and Set Sponsorship Tiers
Aimed mainly at corporate donors. Decide on:

- Gold tier: $15k plus
- Silver tier: $5k - $14,999K
- Bronze tier: $1k - $4,999k
- Duration of sponsor recognition per tier (propose 1 year, 2 year, 3 year)
- Methods of recognition (plaques, website, social media posts)
- Can get listed on website for one year under corporate sponsorship section.
- Can get a plaque on any items donated as long as we have them.
- Can get a name on our own plaque for an indefinite time until we get around to removing them.
- Social media might happen, but more aspirational than practical at this point.
