Corporate Sponsorship


Why Become a Sponsor?

Sponsoring an event, program, research project, or even capital needs at BTI not only shows your support for BTI’s mission, but also benefits your company by helping to build your brand awareness, not only in the Ithaca, NY area, but to our national and international audiences.  We will work with you to find the most appropriate initiative for your support, as well as a personalized set of benefits.

The following is a menu of potential basic sponsor benefits. We are happy to discuss other ideas for your specific needs.

  • BTI Webpage – Company logo listed on the Corporate Sponsor page for one year after your gift of the BTI website that receives more than 105,000 annual hits.
  • Social Media – We announce support as appropriate via BTI social media channels, which include Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, and Instagram
  • Media Releases – When appropriate, we would mention your support in media releases related to the sponsored initiative
  • Event Sponsors – Recognition in event/program promotions and programs, and an expression of gratitude during announcements
  • Custom – designed benefits based on your needs
  • Annual report – Your support will be listed in the BTI annual report
