The parade is funded in large part by sponsorships and individual donors. Sponsorships/donations provide an opportunity for community organizations, civic groups, corporations, large and small businesses, and individuals to participate at a level that is comfortable for them.
All sponsors and donors (except for those that choose to remain anonymous) are acknowledged on the parade website, in the media, and in the Marlborough Labor Day Parade booklet. Those that choose to sponsor floats or performing units with a donation of $500 or more, are also identified and acknowledged on signs held by a representative of the sponsored performing unit or are secured to the sponsored float.
