Sponsor

Sponsoring is a great way to ensure that your money is going as far as possible to The Bournemouth Rock, because it is the endowment, which allows our newspaper to retain funds for the long term.

Giving to The Bournemouth Rock endowment means ensuring the future financial stability of the publication – which would allow continued student training in journalism and business. With an ambitious goal over a several-year campaign, the aims of the donations will be:

– To fully fund all student staff positions at The Bournemouth Rock, including reporters, photographers, designers, sub editors, section editors, advertising and marketing, production, and administrative staff.

– To fund professional training programs for students in all aspects of reporting and media production.

– To guarantee the continued independence of the all-student newsroom of The Bournemouth Rock.

We seek to protect The Bournemouth Rock’s legacy by guaranteeing that it will persist as the preeminent training institution for young journalists.

DESIGNATED SPONSORS

The Bournemouth Rock is pursuing and developing many projects that will help us create a high standing organisation delivering news to students and the local community.

The General Fund

You don’t have to dedicate your donation to a project! Contributions, which are left undedicated, will go to the General Fund, which supports the general operations of The Bournemouth Rock. That includes fortnightly printing and off-campus distribution.

Support now.

Technology and Equipment (cameras, computers, etc.)

Newsgathering takes more than a pad of paper: cameras, recording equipment, computers, etc.  The Bournemouth Rock strives to provide the best equipment for its reporters, designers and photographers; donating funds or even recently used equipment can help us out more than ever.  Support now.

Digital Development (website improvements, video, podcasts)

Online development covers some of our most important work: bringing the Bournemouth Rock’s editorial content to our audience through more than just print. These digital initiatives include innovations on our website, more video and podcast production, plus research and development for new projects.

Student Training (training and workshops)

The Bournemouth Rock functions as a training ground for Bournemouth University students interested in Multimedia Journalism, Communication, PR, Marketing, and Digital Media. The Bournemouth Rock can help educate students interested in journalism. Workshops, as well, serve to magnify the knowledge of the students who produce our paper. Ultimately, supporting student training at the Bournemouth Rock creates the foundation for a great newspaper.  

Scholarships

Scholarships give students opportunity to do more with their time at The Bournemouth Rock. Supporting the diversity and viability of The Bournemouth Rock staff is key to keeping its product at the same great quality at which it is now. The best way to achieve this is through scholarships to the deserving student staff of the newspaper.
