Fort Drum active duty, reserve, retirees, dependents and civilian personnel total over 43,000. Through Family and MWR Commercial Sponsorship and Advertising, you can ensure direct exposure of your products and services to our military community.

What is Commercial Advertising?

The Army’s Family and MWR Commercial Advertising Program generates revenue for Fort Drum's military community through activities and programs. Family and MWR Commercial Advertisers are guaranteed promotion of their products, services, and businesses within the military community.

What is Commercial Sponsorship?

Commercial Sponsorship is an exchange of values. Family and MWR Commercial Sponsors provide goods, cash, or services to underwrite the cost of providing Family and MWR programs and events in return for advertising or promotional opportunities within the military community.

What’s in it for you?

Family and MWR Commercial Sponsorship and Advertising is an effective means of achieving visibility in a hard-to-reach military market. Your business can build name awareness, enhance business image, and increase visibility through:

  • Visual identification with sponsor’s trademark, logo, name or message used on flyers, printed programs, table tents, bookmarks, balloons, signs, banners, coupons, electronic media, and other promotional materials when feasible
  • Acknowledgment in event publicity including public news releases, on-site announcements, and other promotional materials when feasible
  • On-site involvement possibilities include public address announcements, company recognition in awards and presentations, event hospitality tents
  • Opportunity for product sales tie-ins, exhibits, displays and demonstrations, sampling, and the opportunity to do market research prior to or at events
  • Media plans including cooperative advertising, radio giveaways, and special promotions
  • Direct access to the hard-to-reach military market
  • Maximum exposure and visibility for your products and services
