Working With Everyone
CalWild’s unofficial motto has long been “we’ll meet with anybody.” And that tendency goes beyond the grassroots organizing tactics we’ve honed since 1976; it also applies to the wide spectrum of businesses of all sizes with whom we collaborate for many projects.
We’ve already established a number of ways to work with other groups, and are open to hearing your ideas for new partnership opportunities. Contact us if you’re interested in working together on:
- sponsorships (interns, events, campaigns)
- donations and discount swaps
- advocacy shares on social media
- restoration/stewardship projects
- film screenings, fundraisers, and other special events
- membership drives
- town hall meetings
- corporate presentations
- other action opportunities
Recent Partnership Highlights
In March 2017, Topa Topa Brewing Company wanted to contribute to our efforts in re-introducing the Central Coast Heritage Protection Act, and agreed to donate 1% of their monthly proceeds to CalWild, the lead group in the local Central Coast Wild Heritage coalition. As if that wasn’t enough, they also hosted another installment of their ongoing Pints with Purpose series on March 30th, with 10% of the evening’s proceeds donated. We helped bring over 250 people to the event, which featured the Ventucky String Band and a raffle. Topa Topa staff said it was one of the larger attendances they’ve ever had for that series!
The sustainably-made clothing company Nau featured CalWild as its September 2017 conservation partner. Throughout the month, Nau posted a blog/interview piece with our Senior Conservation Director Ryan Henson, several social media spotlights of our work on the Central Coast, and it all culminated with a fundraising event in their Portland headquarters for one the city’s First Thursdays. We really appreciate their commitment to highlighting our work through their membership in the Conservation Alliance!
In February/March 2017 we worked with several sponsors for our annual Membership Drive:
