Sponsor an Event
Supporting Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation (LPBF) events through sponsorship is an excellent way to broaden your community involvement. Event sponsorship not only helps area businesses reach thousands of families throughout the Basin, but also supports the Foundation’s important restoration activities, educational programs, and advocacy efforts.
LPBF hosts exciting events throughout the year. There are a variety of event sponsorship opportunities available to corporations, small businesses, and individuals. Being an LPBF sponsor is about much more than writing checks. It is about building a relationship with LPBF and getting to know us, our mission, and our supporters.
While helping to Save Our Lake & Coast is the greatest reason to sponsor an LPBF event, there are many other benefits—including having your name placed on promotional materials and signage, recognition in our newsletters and Annual Report, tickets to special events, and more.
