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 serve over 8,000 people every year and will continue to grow our community presence. Our events bring the community together, and our mission-based Signature Programs provide lake access for over 100 local organizations and schools including the Boys & Girls Club, King Street Center, the Sara Holbrook Community Center, and more!

Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities

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 one of our events, 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 Classrooms which bring science and math to life for over 1,000 student a year!

Corporate Partner Programs

The Corporate Partner Program offer numerous ways for your organization to support the Community Sailing Center while enjoying great benefits, visibility, and much more.
