Sponsorship Icon

Transition Sarasota is a non-profit organization working to strengthen our local community. Although volunteers provide most of the time and energy for our projects, operating expenses such as maintaining a part-time executive director, maintaining our website and other software, film rentals, and many other costs require funding. Memberships provide a small part of this, and TS seeks and obtains project cost grants when possible, but sponsorships are critical to our financial sustainability. Sponsorship terms are valid for our current fiscal year which runs from July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018. Please see our document Transition Sarasota -- What We Do for some basic details of our projects and our reach.

By sponsoring Transition Sarasota and its unique projects such as Eat Local Week, the Suncoast Gleaning Project, and the Films For a Future series, local organizations and businesses present themselves to a wide audience already focused on supporting their community and local economy. Our sizable newsletter and volunteer lists, website and social media presence, and most of all the high visibility of our programs provide considerable exposure for our sponsors.

A Transition Sarasota sponsorship is an expression of the sponsor’s desire to strengthen our local community. Therefore, while Transition Sarasota seeks common ground with a broad spectrum of organizations and businesses, we reserve the right to refuse sponsorship when the relationship is not appropriate for the missions of both parties.

Donors are invited to negotiate higher-level sponsorships with correspondingly greater impact, and even to consider a game-changing endowment-level contribution that would elevate TS to the next level as a force for building local community in Sarasota and Manatee Counties.

Types and Benefits

Our event sponsorships start at $200 and annual sponsorship packages run from $500 to $5,000. These provide various benefits, including appearance on this website, other publicity and targeted acknowledgement, and recognition at Transition Sarasota events. We are happy to tailor packages to the special requirements of individual sponsors.
