Sponsorships

Extra Support to Make Your Action or Event Excellent

The Democracy Center aims to support organizations and actions that help to bring about a more just, creative, expressive, connected, and equitable world.

In 2019, we launched a sponsorship program to support organizations' bridge small gaps in their budget. For example, we have sponsored speaker fees, interpretation, and accessible space rentals.

The Details

  • We have $6,000 to spend over a fiscal year (July-June), with a cap of $500 per event

  • The DC must be listed as a sponsor of the event

  • Funds must be used for a specific purpose, and itemized records submitted to us after the event

  • The DC reserves complete discretion over what we sponsor. Decisions are based on mission alignment, capacity, resources, and demonstrated need
