Sponsorship Opportunities

Throughout the year the Sherburne History Center hosts a number of public programs and events. To help underwrite the costs of these programs we have sponsorship opportunities for businesses and organizations. In return for financial support, sponsors receive recognition at the public event, in news releases about the event, in our newsletter, Historically Speaking, in email notices, and on our website.

Sponsorships can be customized to fit your particular marketing needs and interests. For instance, you may be interested in helping underwrite a particular preservation project in the archives, helping support historic building preservation, or underwriting exhibits or events.

Sponsorship opportunities exist for the following public events:
