DID YOU KNOW THAT WE LEND OUT MARQUEE TENTS AND POPCORN MACHINES TO NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS?


​Envision Financial's marquee tents and popcorn machines can help you add a special touch to your fundraising or community event. We have a number of 20 x 20 marquee tents that are perfect for establishing a hub of activity at your next event.

And for an added dose of flavour and fun at your event, we also have professional popcorn machines available to help you raise funds or to just simply treat your guests.

Marquee tent sponsorship includes delivery, set-up, and take-down and our popcorn machine sponsorship includes delivery and cleaning and comes with a supply of popcorn kernels and bags.

All applications received are reviewed on a weekly basis and we will provide you with an email of your application's status within two weeks of your submission. Due to high demand and in an effort to ensure all of our community partners are equally supported by this program, we ask that you submit no more than four requests per calendar year for your organization or group. Please note: All applications require at least two weeks notice prior to event date to be accepted.

If your application is approved, a representative from the Tent Guys will be in contact with you at least two business days prior to your event. At this time, set-up and take-down times and locations will be discussed and confirmed.

At Envision Financial, we evaluate every application on its individual merits. Due to the large volume of requests we receive, we have developed some guidelines and criteria for giving. Prior to submitting an application, please review the criteria below to assess whether your application fits within Envision Financial's guidelines.
