We offer numerous ways for businesses to support Durango Nature Studies, while receiving name recognition and contributing to the health of the community. Here are some options (or view our summary of options):
Support Our School Enrichment Programs:
DNS Provides science enrichment programs for every student in Durango as well as many other students throughout the Four Corners at our 140-acre Nature Center. Schools cover 25 percent of the cost of these programs, we must fundraise to cover the balance. To allow us to continue this essential standards-based program, consider sponsoring a grade at one school or an entire school. Sponsors will be recognized by each school and have their logo on the appropriate school program website page. We are happy to discuss other ways to highlight your support of this program.
Become an Event Sponsor
DNS hosts several community events each year, including a couple of film festivals and the Earth Day Festival. In 2019, we will be celebrating our 25th Anniversary with a special celebration in May as well! As an event sponsor, you will receive tickets to the events, have your logo on each event’s web page, have a banner hung at each event, and be recognized on our promotions. You can choose to sponsor all our annual events for one price or select “a la carte” from the options below.
Scholarships for Summer Camps and After-school Programs
Durango Nature Studies provides summer camps and after-school enrichment programs (Nature Club) for Durango children. As a Tier 1 partner of the 9R school district, we provide unlimited scholarships to families who qualify for assistance. A $500 sponsorship ensures a quality experience for two local children. Your company will receive acknowledgement on our social media, relevant web pages, and recognition in our e-news and annual reports.
