All of our major programs are available for sponsorship. We're also building some exciting new initiatives with higher-level branding opportunities set to launch in 2024. We're happy to create customized sponsorship packages that align your brand with BGDM’s mission-driven work. 


We believe in nurturing  deep and lasting relationships with our supporters that go beyond a financial investment. We also recognize that to make real and lasting change, we need to fundraise in a framework rooted in social, racial, and economic justice principles to align with our core values. For us, this means partnering with entities that want to work collaboratively with us as thought partners, social change agents, and leaders in the field.
