Eichler Home Tour Sponsorship and Advertising Opportunities
During the Eichler Home Tour on the weekend of May 18 and 19, there are three different ways a business or organization can support its own marketing objectives and historic architecture. This is the first large-scale tour of Midcentury Modern homes in Orange County, so residents from all over the region will be in attendance. And, because of “Eichler” name recognition throughout the state, the tour is attracting visitors from throughout California, the North- and Southwest. Tour-goers are fans of historic architecture and modern design. The Orange Eichlers are icons of an era that has become enormously popular in the last decade. And, at over 50 years old, they are now historic!
Proceeds from the tour will help underwrite event expenses, and support the mission of Preserve Orange County (POC), the only county-wide nonprofit concerned with the conservation of the historic built environment of the whole county. Our mission includes building awareness of Orange County’s architectural heritage through programming such as the Eichler Home Tour. POC is a tax-exempt charity, registered as an IRC section 501(c)(3). For more information about POC, please click here.
You can sponsor the Eichler Home Tour at one of five different levels, named for some of the materials used in the building and design of the Orange Eichler homes: Fir, Concrete, Aluminum, Mahogany, and Brick. Please see the chart for a breakdown of costs and benefits for each level. Benefits include tickets to the tour and cocktail reception; advertising in the tour’s souvenir booklet; and recognition on the Preserve Orange County website, as well as on-site on tour weekend. Lead sponsorship in the “Fir” category includes signed copies of two beautifully produced, hard cover books on regional architectural history by Alan Hess, historian and architect. Please see all the details here.
Ideal for a business that offers a product or service of interest to our local tour community of Midcentury Modern enthusiasts and homeowners. This sponsorship gives you multiple points of exposure: in the tour booklet, inside a tour house, and on an annual list of vendors on the Preserve Orange County website.

Ok, not really on a billboard! A useful, informative and well-designed tour booklet will be given to every visitor on the Eichler Home Tour. It’s their pass for accessing the houses, and it’s their guide to the architecture, architects and the master builder, Joseph Eichler and Eichler Homes. Written by architectural historians, the booklet is a fine souvenir with a shelf life that will display your ad for months to come.
