Native Plant Trust

Sponsorship

Help Shape the Future Landscape of New England

Engage new audiences and offer exciting new employee benefits

Native plants make up New England's most celebrated scenery, from the sugar maples lighting up the autumn landscape to the white birches cloaking the northern hillsides. They also underpin the ecology of our region and beyond, and form a crucial link to the food on our tables. 

You can help to inspire others to recognize the value of native plants by sponsoring Native Plant Trust. Sponsorship from your company helps to promote the ecological as well as the aesthetic value of our region's plants, enables our botanists both to save New England's rare species and make sure that our common ones—such as sugar maples—remain common in the future. 

When you sponsor Native Plant Trust, you engage your employees and other audiences in our inspiring conservation mission, which touches the landscape visible from workplace and home. By aligning your advertising and public relations with our conservation goals, you are creating a partnership that your employees and customers can be equally proud of.

In addition to reviewing our sponsorship packages,  consider joining our corporate membership program, or making an in-kind gift of goods or services. Our Philanthropy team can help you with any of these options. Contact us at 508-877-7630 x3802 or development@NativePlantTrust.org.
