Experimenting with Sponsorships

This year we are trying something new. We invite Quaker organizations, small businesses and organizations in line with Quaker values to consider sponsoring FGC’s annual Gathering. This is a wonderful way to share your organization with Friends through a partnership with FGC. There are a variety of sponsorship levels to choose from. All levels allow FGC’s network of Friends to hear about your organization when we promote the Gathering and during the event.

Why Sponsorships?

As the costs of putting on the Gathering increase and attendance decreases, we understand that raising registration fees creates barriers for potential attendees. We are seeking other avenues for increasing income to help hold down registration fees. Event sponsorship is one way we can address this challenge.
