Corporate Support

Giving back to the Conservancy can benefit your business by showing your most valued customers that you are concerned with the needs of a local nonprofit that provides so much to so many. You will receive recognition within the Park, on our website, Facebook, and printed materials as a sponsor of an event or program or a garden. Your company name and logo will be on banners and signs displayed in the park, on electronic marketing media, on garden display signs, and at our annual meeting.

As a world-class park, it requires world-class supporters. Your support will reinforce your leadership in community and environmental initiatives and enhance the quality of life in greater Hartford and central Connecticut – not just for the public but also for your employees, customers, and their families.

Please contact the Elizabeth Park Conservancy at 860-231-9443 to discuss partnership opportunities and other ways to support the Park. We are happy to meet with you at your office or have you visit the park for a tour to develop a package that meets your philanthropic and marketing goals.
