Riverfront Spokane Sponsorships and Partnerships

Overview

As the redevelopment of Riverfront progresses and our downtown urban park is reinvigorated, we have developed sponsorship and giving opportunities for those interested in collaborating with and supporting the parks' legacy and programming mission. These opportunities are above and beyond the five bond-funded redevelopment projects approved and funded by voters (Looff Carrousel building, skate ribbon, promenade, U.S. Pavilion, and destination playground).

Facility Naming Rights

Riverfront is offering corporate naming opportunities for the skate ribbon and the U.S. Pavilion. Funds from corporate facility sponsorships will be used for enhanced free and low-cost programming and ongoing maintenance to the community's $64M redevelopment investment. Parks and Recreation Division contracted with Brett Sports to create corporate naming sponsorship packages. Brett Sports will assist in valuing the naming assets, marketing the assets and securing corporate facility title sponsors. Businesses interested in learning more about facility naming rights at Riverfront are asked to please contact Dave Pier at Brett Sports, 509.340.8402.

Philanthropic Opportunities

The Spokane Parks Foundation, an independent non-profit 501(c)(3), is working with Riverfront to foster philanthropic naming and giving opportunities for donors wanting to support additional amenities in the park beyond those funded with bond dollars. Donations are being actively sought for numerous impactful projects including an additional playground on Havermale Island (separate from the bond playground on the North Bank), a dog park, tour train, expo '74 butterfly, art, and interpretive signage. Donations may be eligible for recognition through an engraved brick in the promenade or similar opportunities developed with the renovation of the park. Donors are encouraged to contact Carol Neupert, Spokane Parks Foundation, Campaign Manager, at 509.326.5233 for more details.

Corporate Sponsorships & Partnerships

Riverfront Spokane corporate partnerships are highly customizable and traditional exclusive category partnerships are available as well as entry level programming partnerships. Our Programming and Marketing team can also help craft and create unique events that align with the park's mission and our partner's community engagement and/or business goals. Partnerships range in price from a few hundred dollars to several hundred thousand and are based on on-site activation, shared programming assistance and co-promotion, term length, and exclusivity.
