Sponsorship Opportunities


What your sponsorship supports

Mohawk Valley Gives, a “day of giving” hosted by the Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties, encourages and enhances financial support for nonprofit partner organizations serving the Mohawk Valley.

Making Mohawk Valley Gives successful each year benefits all our nonprofits. Sponsorship shows that your business or organization supports them, and tells the two-county community what your brand stands for—making the Mohawk Valley an even better place to live, work and play. Opportunities come in all shapes and sizes, and higher-level sponsorships will reach thousands of residents thousands of times through the US Mail, email, social media and other online engagement. 

Your support will:

  • Increase nonprofit visibility in our community
  • Provide valuable training opportunities for nonprofit leaders
  • Award custom prize grants to participating nonprofits
  • Encourage community-wide engagement with trusted nonprofit organizations
  • Demonstrate your dedication to the local nonprofit community

And here’s a bonus! A portion of sponsorship contributions will feed a pool of prizes that nonprofits can win to increase their giving day fundraising. These prizes are made up of pre-determined criteria that the Community Foundation will work with you to establish. The nonprofit that meets those criteria during the giving day will be awarded that prize. Our team would be happy to walk through examples with you!

If you have questions about sponsorship opportunities or other ways to get involved, please get in touch with Nick Grimmer, ngrimmer@foundationhoc.org, 315-525-6584. Click here to fill out our online sponsorship form.
