Welcome to Commercial Sponsorship and Advertising

The 18 FSS Commercial Sponsorship Coordinator is in charge of obtaining sponsors for support of 18 FSS events, activities and programs. Sponsorship funds are utilized to help 18 FSS facilities offset costs associated with their programs or to help enhance activities and events.

Commercial sponsorship is not only about helping 18 FSS facilities, but is also about giving back to the military community while gaining public recognition.
