become a sponsor
Your support matters!
By becoming a Sponsor, you’ll strengthen the independence and enrich the well-being of older adults throughout Kent County. Annual Sponsors are recognized throughout the year, at all major events, for their generous partnership, while Event Sponsors receive targeted recognition through the 16 Over 60 Awards Gala, held each fall.
You will be recognized and appreciated for your generous support.
We’ll make a diverse audience aware of your caring partnership with Senior Neighbors, including clients and their families, community and business leaders, senior advocates, service providers and your fellow philanthropists.
The forms and extent of recognition you receive are up to you! Depending on your type and level of sponsorship, benefits may include print ads, social media call-outs, recognition on our website, free event registrations, posters at our various locations and events, verbal acknowledgement at events, and recognition in our monthly newsletter.
