Sponsorship Opportunities

Event Sponsorships

Our event sponsorship program offers businesses, nonprofits, and individuals the chance to meet their goals and partner with an Indigenous-led, community-focused organization.

We believe in the power of sharing knowledge about topics related to our mission with members of the broader community. Native Governance Center offers several free events throughout the year that are accessible and open to all. Our sponsorship program offers community partners a unique opportunity to support these events.

Our event sponsorship program will help you:

  • Increase visibility among your target audiences and/or new audiences.
  • Gain a customized, unique opportunity to promote your brand.
  • Demonstrate your commitment to giving back to the community, especially to BIPOC-led organizations.
  • Reach your potential customers through a channel/platform they trust.
