Corporate Partner Program

With climate change and the greening of businesses making headlines every day, more corporations are partnering with environmental groups to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability and to connect with conservation-minded consumers and decision-makers. To that end, the New York League of Conservation Voters Education Fund (NYLCVEF) has established the Corporate Partners Program.

Corporate Partners are corporations, businesses, partnerships, and organizations that support NYLCVEF in our efforts to educate the general public, candidates and elected officials about environmental issues confronting New York State.

The Corporate Partners Program includes eight to ten Eco-Breakfasts throughout the year, which offer corporations an opportunity to network and engage with each other about environmental issues, and provide occasions for our partners to hear from prominent business, environmental and political leaders.

Becoming an Corporate Partner also includes numerous opportunities to highlight our Corporate Partners on our website and informational materials; invitations to exclusive events in New York City, Long Island, the Capital Region, Westchester, and beyond; semi-annual conference call updates with special guests and senior NYLCVEF staff and access to staff for exclusive one-on-one briefings; and opportunities to highlight your company’s participation as an Corporate Partner in our newsletter.

If you are interested in joining the Corporate Partners program, contact Marla Klinger: (212) 361 6350 x 204; or fill out this form online.
