Special Event Sponsorships
Share This:  
Sponsor Banner and Bicycles at Ride the Rock EventThe Forest Preserve District of Will County offers a variety of opportunities for your organization to support our mission of protecting, conserving, enhancing, and promoting Will County's natural heritage for the educational, recreational, and environmental benefit of present and future generations.

One of these opportunities is our Special Event Sponsorship program. Sponsorships from organizations like yours help provide the best special event possible, while promoting the sponsors as working to enhance the quality of life for our community.

The Forest Preserve District accepts direct and in-kind contributions for our Special Event Sponsorship program, and offers four levels of support:
  • Gold - $1,000 or In-Kind Equivalent
  • Silver - $500 or In-Kind Equivalent
  • Bronze - $250 or In-Kind Equivalent
  • Partner - $125 or In-Kind Equivalent
The Forest Preserve also offers a District-wide special event sponsorship opportunity at the $2,500 level, which supports all of the District's special events during a calendar year. Download the District-wide special event sponsorship program for 2015.

The benefits of each level of support vary with each event, but typically include informational booth space at the event, logo or name placement on marketing materials, and/or recognition in our newsletter, The Citizen. These benefits make sponsors visible to thousands of residents within the Will County area, and highlight the organizations' concern for the environment and the community in which they operate.

Event-specific sponsorship opportunities are available for the following upcoming event(s):
