Sponsorships

Our Success Is Created Through Partnerships

Upswell is grounded in the belief that when people connect, they share, learn, innovate. We depend on strong partnerships to achieve our shared goals – among organizations, participants, and sponsors. We are pleased to offer a range of partnership opportunities. Investors will be acknowledged in six major categories, with suggested benefits and visibility opportunities available at each level.

The Upswell team looks forward to working with you to craft a partnership package that leverages your expertise and experience, matches your program and issue interests, meets your needs for connection and visibility, and is within your budget.

The Upswell Community

Upswell is for anyone who believes in a society where every person can thrive. Powered by Independent Sector, we’re a diverse and vast community of relentless changemakers. Nonprofit and foundation professionals, organizational leaders, philanthropists, innovators, artists, corporate citizens, community activists, and social entrepreneurs of every kind of mission for good. Creating a healthy and racially equitable nation will require nothing less than the absolute best that each of us has to offer – including you.
