Giving and Sponsorship Opportunities

We offers multiple ways to position your company and your name in front of a diverse, national base of CNT supporters and those interested in environmental, economic, and social equity issues.

Individuals: Join Our Sustainability Circle

The Sustainability Circle is CNT’s network of individual leaders committed to CNT’s mission of improving urban economies and environments across America with gifts of $360 or more. In thanks, Sustainability Circle donors receive special recognition and privileges, such as recognition in our Annual Report and early and exclusive invitations to CNT events.


Sponsorship Opportunities

Corporate partnerships offer flexible, year-long sponsorships that can be linked to specific programs or activities.  Opportunities currently exist to sponsor the Equity Express Green Financial Literacy Program, as well as aspects of the Location Efficiency Hub. Event sponsorships are another great way to participate in exciting CNT activities surrounded by other supporters, and a great way to get your employees involved in urban sustainability issues. CNT event sponsorships change throughout the year, and are currently available for the Urban Sustainability Tech Challenge. Contact the Development Department today to create your customized package and to learn more.
