By becoming a BALLE sponsor, you’ll have the opportunity to engage thought leaders and trailblazers while aligning your brand with the pioneers of the new economy. From online webinars to national events, BALLE’s status as the go-to resource for all things Local will offer unique support to your existing brand. Our select group of sponsors receive visibility in our community, are positioned as leaders in the local economies movement and at the same time, support our work.
Foundation Partners and Supporters
Our Foundation partners and supporters are working with us to advance the national field through funding, investment and sound financial practices and services, and we appreciate these bold path-finders who are investing in local economies.
Web Partners receive premium rotating logo placements on every page of the BALLE website, as well as premium placement on our dedicated Partners page, including a description of their mission and a link to their website. BALLE’s website is the hub of the fast-growing localist community, collecting the best news, stories, tools, and resources for creating real local prosperity, and connecting local economy pioneers within and across communities.
Series sponsors underwrite and advance BALLE's work to spread solutions, sharing proven tools and best practices that speed and scale our collective impact. Each series includes monthly best practice webinars attended by 100 communities across North America, dedicated programming at the annual BALLE conference, and weekly stories about the latest innovations in BALLE's newsroom, blog, newsletter, and social media channels. Sponsors are promoted year-round on the BALLE website, during each live webinar, and in all our marketing for the series. BALLE is currently running a very popular series on Community Capital, and in October and November will be launching new series focused on Local First, Prosperity for All, and Better Together. We invite sponsors to join anytime.
Conference sponsors reach thousands of potential new customers and clients through year-round marketing and deep onsite interactions with hundreds of conference participants. What’s more, by developing relationships with our constituents and participants, our sponsors become potent agents for transformation in the new economy. The BALLE Conference is our seminal annual event, where innovators from North America and beyond come together to explore emerging innovations and business solutions for building healthy, sustainable and competitive local economies. Conference sponsorship includes options for every budget, both packaged and a la carte benefits, and also includes in-kind, scholarship underwriting, and media opportunities.
Media sponsors play an important role in advancing Localism by exploring the innovations and impact of local economy pioneers, and by helping spread the word about BALLE's support services for entrepreneurs, funders, and local economy conveners. In return, we promote the unique voice, tools, and communities of our media sponsors throughout the Localist community. Media sponsorships are developed as partnership trades, and opportunities are available with our conference and our year-round series. Contact us to discuss the possibilities!
