Sponsor an Event
Every year, Aquarium supporters near and far look forward to our three staple events: Turtle Trek 5K, Sea Life by Starlight and our black-tie Conservation Gala. Each event unites a community committed to the present and future of the Aquarium. Funds raised at all three events contribute to our mission, directly making a positive impact on animal care, education programming, conservation efforts and much more. Sponsor an event to amplify your brand to engaged Aquarium donors and our closest circle of supporters.
Sponsor an Exhibit
If you are looking for a more permanent spot for your company at the Aquarium, sponsor an entire exhibit! Your business name will be seen by hundreds of thousands of visitors annually as a corporation on the forefront of conservation and education. From the mountains to the sea, indoor to outdoor, fish to mammals, we can pair your brand with an exhibit that aligns with your corporate identity. We also offer named sponsorship opportunities throughout our holiday light spectacular, Aquarium Aglow.
The Aquarium is in the midst of Landmark, a multi-year enterprising strategy that will guide our organization to innovate in areas of conservation, education and animal care — and to animate and transform our city’s east peninsula. This work cannot be done without the support of like-minded businesses. Become a part of the Aquarium’s next wave as one of the first to be directly aligned with our newest resources to engage more of the community than ever before.
In addition to the above opportunities, we can craft a custom partnership that aligns your corporate strategy with our mission in the way that best suits your goals, with your brand identity and message at the forefront. Let’s start the conversation today!
