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 local businesses reach thousands of families throughout the Basin, but also supports the Foundation’s important restoration activities, educational programs, and advocacy efforts.

LPBF hosts many 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 Preserve Our Lake and Save Our 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, having your logo included in all special event marketing and advertisements, recognition in our newsletters, tickets to special events, and more.

We look to our partners to help us connect with the community where they live, work, and play. We're pleased to help our sponsors make a positive impact.

To learn more about these great LPBF events and how you can become a proud LPBF sponsor, please call the Event Office at 504-836-2205.
