Join Shoal Creek Conservancy in an opportunity to steward and explore Shoal Creek. Companies can make an impact through a variety of sponsorship programs and events. Please contact us at [email protected] to learn more!
Engage your teams with a Custom Workday. SCC partners with companies who want to support our mission and inspire their staff through interactive workdays along the Creek. We will coordinate a volunteer project for your team where and when it is most convenient for you. We provide the tools & guidance, and your team gets to experience Shoal Creek in a new way while giving back to the community. ($5,000 Sponsorship)
10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY – PRESENTING SPONSOR
Celebrate 10 years of improving Shoal Creek with the Presenting Sponsorship of a full year of events! The 10 Year Anniversary Sponsor will receive “Presented By” credit on all 2024 Shoal Creek Tours (10 unique tours between Jan-Dec 2024), as well as the signature State of Shoal Creek Breakfast in May 2024.
Additional benefits include inclusion in KUT/KUTX radio ads, logo inclusion on all 10 Year Anniversary materials and giveaway items and a Supporter Spotlight in the SCC newsletter. ($25,000 Presenting Sponsorship)
STATE OF SHOAL CREEK BREAKFAST
The Breakfast will be a seated, ticketed event in May 2024 with presentations recapping Shoal Creek Conservancy’s past 10 years of service, plans for the future, a panel discussion, networking opportunities and a full breakfast and coffee. (Sponsorship levels vary, $1,000-$10,000, see Presenting Sponsorship above)
SHOAL CREEK SHOPPING CART CORRAL
In 2022, a City of Austin field study found over 500 shopping carts in Austin’s creeks, which prompted Shoal Creek Conservancy to organize the first Shopping Cart Corral in Summer 2023. In 2 hours, we removed 48 shopping carts, 6 scooters, and 111 bags of trash from Shoal Creek during the inaugural event.
Sponsor this now-annual event in July 2024 to recreate the magic of the first Corral. Sponsors will be promoted alongside this event in media coverage, the SCC website, social media, and event materials. The 2023 event was featured in 3 local news stories on KXAN and KVUE. The Presenting Sponsor will also be featured in a KUT/KUTX ad. ($5,000 Supporting Sponsorship, $15,000 Presenting Sponsorship)
SHOAL CREEK SOCIAL
Join SCC’s largest, annual party on the creek – the Shoal Creek Social. Sponsorships support Shoal Creek Conservancy’s year-round operations and bring this fun, family-friendly event to life. Sponsors at the $5,000 level and above are invited to set up an activity or info booth at the event. All Shoal Creek Social sponsors receive ample spotlight and recognition during the event and on event-related communications and collateral. (Sponsorship levels vary, $1,000-$25,000 Presenting Sponsor)
SCC hosts an intern each spring and fall to provide hands-on experience with leading volunteer workdays, creating educational materials, and conducting special projects. Support an intern at $5,000 for one semester (1 intern) or $10,000 for a full school year (2 interns).
TRAIL TOUR SPONSORSHIP
Shoal Creek Conservancy hosts free, monthly trail tours for all Austinites to join. Tours are led by SCC and experts from partner organizations who are able to speak to the Creek’s geologic, ecological, and/or cultural history. As a Trail Tour sponsor, you will support six months of public trail tours and have the opportunity to activate a section of the Creek with promotional activities and branding during tours. This is a great way to directly share your company with tour attendees and the hundreds of trail users who will pass by. ($10,000 Sponsorship per season)
CAMPAIGN MATCH SPONSOR
Share your company’s philanthropic support with thousands through a SCC fundraising campaign. Match Sponsors pledge to donate a certain amount, and SCC promotes your company’s pledge to inspire other donors to help meet it. This is a high impact way for your brand to be seen by a broad demographic through a variety of media outlets. Multiple opportunities exist throughout the year. Contact us to discuss which campaign you’d like to be featured in!
