Sponsorship Opportunities

There are many rewarding sponsorship opportunities available.  You can learn about some of them below. In addition, at our Smithtown, NY campus, we also have numerous capital naming opportunities ranging from $10,000 - $2 million.  Naming opportunities involve permanent recognition and signage for specific areas of giving, and locations on campus vary.  Please let our Development staff know if you are interested in learning more about capital or other project specific giving opportunities.
