Donate to IPORE
|See example here >>|
If you would like to design your own sponsorship notice, it must conform to the following specifications:
|Format||A static JPEG (.jpg) or GIF (.gif). Animations are not allowed.|
|Size and Shape||No more than 22,500 pixels in any rectangular shape up to 500 pixels in the longest dimension.
Here are three examples of many possible sizes that equal 22,500 pixels:|
|Hyperlink||The entire sponsorship notice may, if you like, be a hyperlink to your website.|
|Design||Must be tasteful, and suitable for all audiences. No blinking, flashing, or movement of any sort. Must not be derogatory or defamatory.|
|Content||The content must be one of the following:
|Conformance to IRS Requirements||Sponsorship payments received by IPORE must conform to specific requirements in order to be received tax free by IPORE. Accordingly, the acknowledgment of your company as a sponsor of IPORE may not contain any of the following elements: qualitative or comparative language, price information or other indications of savings or value, an endorsement by IPORE, or an inducement to readers to purchase, sell, or use your company's services, facilities or products. Logos and slogans that do not contain qualitative or comparative descriptions of your company's products or services, value-neutral descriptions, and listings of company locations, telephone numbers, and internet addresses are permitted references. As well, a hyperlink to your company's website is permissible.|
While any notice that conforms to the above will probably be accepted, IPORE does reserve the right to refuse any notice for any reason. We will control the location of the notice, but it will be at or near the top of the page in which it appears. Each stop entry page will have at most one sponsorship notice.
Donations to IPORE are currently not tax-deductible. However, we are in the process of applying for tax-exempt status, and if we achieve that status within one year of your donation, your donation will be retroactively tax-deductible. We expect to obtain tax-exempt status sometime in 2003.
The page on which your sponsorship notice appears depends on the amount of your donation. The donation levels are:
The stops in each donation level were selected based on how likely they are to
be visited, using actual usage statistics and other criteria. The highest
donation levels include those stops most likely to be visited.
