Sponsorship Packages

TOTY sponsorship – which includes support of the Toy Industry Foundation – provides unique opportunities to highlight your organization or brand in front of a premiere industry audience. 

Questions may be directed to TIA ’s Adrienne Appell (646.520.4863).


Support for the Toy Industry Foundation (TIF) is primarily through the purchase of ads in the TOTY Tribute Book and additional “100% tax deductible” financial contributions submitted via the online reservation form. No portion of the event registration fee directly supports the TIF, and therefore the event reservation fee is not tax-deductible as a charitable contribution.
