Corporate Partners

At the Lloyd Center, we seek to create strategic partnerships with businesses to craft mutually beneficial relationships. Such alliances build upon complementary interests, strengths and needs.

Corporate partnerships are an excellent way to provide businesses with strategic visibility in the community. While helping the Lloyd Center meet the highest standards in education, research, and outreach programs, we will work with your company to ensure that your giving supports your strategic business goals.

There are many ways your company can partner with the Lloyd Center.

Examples of possible corporate support include:

• Corporate matching fund program
• Financial support of fund-raising events, such as the annual Clambake

• Volunteer Support

Depending on your interests and objectives, we can work with you to develop a plan in one of the following areas or to design a plan to fit with your unique needs:

1. Education
Companies can support learning by supporting our education programs in the region through grants or endowments, or though individual scholarships, fellowships or paid internships. This type of support demonstrates a company’s belief in the value of education, and enables us to recruit and retain teachers of the highest quality. Such support will enable us to continue to provide our high quality interactive programs which currently reach 13,000 students annually.

2. Research
Support of the Lloyd Center’s important research and conservation projects is crucial to the future of the waters and lands of this beautiful coastal region, as well as to the future well-being of a number of endangered species. Companies can support our regional programs through grants or endowments, or though individual scholarships, fellowships or paid internships.

3. Facilities Upgrades
Enhancing the Center’s buildings, grounds and exhibits is a significant way for a company to support the fine programming at the Lloyd Center. Equipment upgrades, building improvements, and naming opportunities are meaningful ways for a company to receive major marketing exposure and lasting visibility.

4. Matching Gift Programs
One of the easiest and most effective ways for a company to make an impact is through a matching gift program. When a company increases the monetary impact of their employee’s contributions, it makes a strong statement about the importance of philanthropy and giving back to the community.
