Sponsoring and/or Partnering with the CSC is a win-win relationship.
The Community Sailing Center is most alive when the ice clears and the weather warms – seven days a week, 10 hours a day, 184 days a year. Children, teenagers, college students, families, and professional adults come to Burlington’s Waterfront – spilling out of their cars, hopping off their bikes to drag a boat, kayak or paddleboard onto Lake Champlain. We have thousands of visitors on-site, and thousands more online. Our events literally rock our docks, and our mission-based Signature Programs provide lake access for over 60 local non-profits including the Boys & Girls Club, King Street Center, the New North End Youth Center, and more!
Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities
A benefit of corporate sponsorship is the means to activate a grassroots marketing initiative while playing a crucial role in making Lake Champlain accessible to all. Strategic partnerships with a program or event sponsorship targets specific demographics of influential populations.
CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP is an exciting opportunity to become involved with the Community Sailing Center. As the only community based non-profit focused on providing public access to Lake Champlain, the Community Sailing Center offers a targeted sponsorship program and a wide variety of sponsorship options. Whether your goal is strategic philanthropy through our Annual Rock the Dock Benefit or brand recognition through Sail Sponsorship, we will create a customized program to align with the philanthropic goals of your organization.
PROGRAM SPONSORSHIP supports unique character development experiences for disadvantaged youth, or demonstrate your company’s commitment to the Lake stewardship by underwriting Signature Programs like Floating Classroom which bring science and math to life for over 1,000 student a year!
