Integrity Home Care Becomes Presenting Sponsor for
2018 Greene County Extension Programs


SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - Integrity Home Care + Hospice in Springfield provides home health, hospice, pediatrics and much more throughout the state of Missouri. Their services are especially sought after in rural areas which made Greene County MU Extension a perfect partner.

Integrity Home Care + Hospice is first new presenting sponsor for Greene County MU Extension in several years thanks to the efforts of Greene County Extension Council member and volunteer Kent John.

"Being a presenting sponsor for our programs offers a unique opportunity at the reasonable price of $2,000 for 12 months," said David Burton, country program director for Greene County Extension. "This is an excellent marketing opportunity that brings recognition to the sponsor and support to the local extension office."

Presenting sponsors are listed on the ads, media releases and promotions of the major programs offering by Greene County Extension during the year. Burton explains that many businesses sponsor individual programs or events to target specific audiences at a smaller price.

"The presenting sponsor package helps the extension office with event planning and marketing but it also gives the sponsor access to the thousands of people we reach during the year with our marketing and our programs," said Burton.

Greene County Extension annually hosts fee-based programs with an attendance of over 1,500 people. Over 40,000 county residents accessed programs through Greene County Extension in 2017.

However, marketing efforts by the extension office for these programs reach over 100,000 a year.

Current presenting sponsors include Integrity Home Care and Hospice, Greene County Commission, Greene County Soil and Water Conservation District and the Springfield-Greene County Park Board.

For more information on how your business can become a presenting sponsor, contact Greene County Extension Council member and volunteer Kent John at (801) 604-2338 or David Burton by email at burtond@missouri.edu.
