    2222However, you *don't* need:
    24   * Much money; the Django Software Foundation can help with costs. Ideally the space should be free, but it doesn't have to be. If you can get someone locally to pay for lunch that's even better, but attendees will be fine buying meals for themselves.
     24  * Much money; the Django Software Foundation can help with costs. Ideally you should find a sponsor (see below), but you don't have to have one.
    2626  * A committer -- the DSF will make sure that at least one committer attends each official sprint.
     28=== Sponsorship ===
     30It's a good idea to try to find a local sponsor who will donate/pay for space, and perhaps even buy lunch/beer. Your sponsor should feel free to spend as much or as little as they feel comfortable with. To get an idea of costs, a sprint at a corporate office (i.e. free space) and cheap lunch (pizza or the like) for 30 will cost somewhere in the $500 range.
     32If your sprint is being sponsored, please feel free to add a big "sponsored by" section and link to the sprint page! We love sponsorships!
     34Also, note that the Django Software Foundation is a bona fide 501(c)(3) non-profit, which means that the money the sponsor spends on the sprint can be considered a donation to the DSF, and will be tax-deductible. Keep track of expenses and the DSF will write a receipt for donations.
     36Sponsoring a sprint may also qualify the sponsor for corporate membership in the DSF; contact the Foundation for details.
    2838== 2. Announce the sprint ==
    3040  * Create a wiki page for your sprint (see SprintTemplate for a template you can copy). Make sure to add details about the location, how people should RSVP, and getting to/from info for out-of-towners.
    3242  * Make sure you have your contact information on that page for anyone who has questions!
