Your Partnership Matters. A Lot.

Why Seventh Generation Institute?

When your company sponsors Seventh Generation Institute, you support the nature that sustains us all. Just as important, your partnership supports a community of other “nature supporters” that the Institute works with and that are committed to sustainable use of natural resources.

We seek business sponsors that share our mission and feel an alignment with the New School approach.

Benefits to Your Business

Your business can partner with the Institute as a whole or opt to support a specific program that most aligns with your business and demographics. It’s your choice. Contact us to explore ideas.

  • When your business partners with Seventh Generation Institute, that partnership clearly communicates your commitment to nature conservation, sustainability, and community responsibility.

  • In certain cases there may be volunteer opportunities or special event opportunities for partners.

Our partners value the Institute because:

  • We make real conservation gains possible.

  • Our projects are grounded in the best available scientific knowledge and methods, as well as strategic collaboration, innovation and constantly seeking impact. In other words, we share many of your values as well.

  • We respect and work with diverse points of view.

  • We can help our partners tell the story of the partnership’s impact.

  • As a smaller organization, we work closely with our partners and listen to your ideas.

Support from real people and businesses provides the financial foundation for Seventh Generation Institute. Yes, we secure public funds and grants, but these funds have become much less plentiful in recent years, and are not a steady source of funds - not a good way to run a steady organization. 

We let people know about your partnership with us:

  • On the Partners page of the Institute’s website – your logo, a link to your business and the sponsorship level you select will be placed on the website.

  • In our Impact Report. All partner names and levels will be listed in upcoming reports.

  • And through other communications. In fact, we look for every possible opportunity to thank our partners – who in fact are partners – since this project couldn’t happen without them.
