Many Ways to Participate
Puget Soundkeeper recognizes that the private sector has an important role to play in advancing our mission. Businesses around Puget Sound have significant impacts on our local waters.
Companies increasingly understand that investments in conservation help protect business assets, mitigate risk and create opportunities. We want to work with companies who care about our environment and are willing to help us in many ways.
If that’s your company, we’d love to talk to you about our ongoing and upcoming sponsorship opportunities:
Cleanups: The Sweep (June, July and August); International Coastal Cleanup (September)
Annual Salute to the Sound Auction and Gala (October)
See more detailed information on our sponsorship page.
Corporate Matching Opportunities
Would your company match dollar for dollar up to a certain amount donations from individuals? This is an amazing tool for increasing our campaign totals and a powerful way for us to leverage your gift.
Company Sponsored Cleanups
Create a team of dedicated volunteers from your company and talk to us about a cleanup on a local waterway—on land or in kayaks. Soundkeeper can help provide kayaks, bags, gloves and grabbers.
Please contact Teresa Nelson or (206) 297-7002 to find out which sponsorship opportunity makes the most sense for your company.
Major Corporate Partners
During Earth Month, AVEDA salons, experience centers and Institutes all over the Puget Sound region raise funds to support Soundkeeper’s work to protect and preserve Puget Sound. In 2014, this amazing partnership raised over $200,000 for Soundkeeper which allowed for increased activity across all program areas and continued growth of our Clean Water Act Enforcement. Internationally AVEDA raised over $5.5 million for clean water projects. AVEDA’s dedication to clean water efforts is truly inspiring.
Brown Bear Car Wash
Brown Bear Car Wash protects the environment by capturing heavy metals, petroleum products and soap washed off cars before discharging the waste water into the sewer treatment system. This year, Brown Bear Car Wash will pay to safely dispose of more than 500 tons of toxic sludge–almost a half pound for every car washed.
Brown Bear sponsors two of Puget Soundkeeper’s biggest cleanups– the Sweep of Lake Union, Portage Bay and Union Bay in the spring. And in the fall, they sponsor the International Coastal Cleanup! Thank you, Brown Bear Car Wash!
If you know of any groups, kids or other non-profits who use car washes to raise money, Puget Soundkeeper would like to recommend checking out the Brown Bear Car Wash Charity Car Wash Program. This program is environmentally responsible– and helps the community.
Pike Brewing Company
Pike brews the Soundkeeper Octopus Ink IPA, a black IPA bittered with Chinook hops. Flavor and aroma hops include Centennial, Amarillo, Citra, and Simco. The beer is dry hopped twice in the fermenter and conditioning tank. This delicious limited release usually sells out fast!
The brewery also hosts the annual Pike Chocofest, a Valentine’s event highlighting the best chocolate, beer and other delicacies Seattle has to offer. A portion of the proceeds each year go to Soundkeeper.
