Corporate Sponsorship

Our Annual Luncheon, attended by nearly 1,200 business and community leaders, is the perfect opportunity for companies that align with our mission to provide philanthropic support as an event sponsor.

We're now busy planning our 2017 event! We welcome you to join us as a Corporate Sponsor.

Sponsorship packages in 2017 range from $3,500 to $25,000, with varying levels of attendance, marketing and promotional opportunities.

To get a sense of our luncheon and all the ways our sponsors are recognized in the community, please view our 2016 Event Wrap Book and other supporting materials from last year's event.

Each year, we proudly acknowledge all participating luncheon sponsors in our event program, an event slideshow and in a Puget Sound Business Journal ad following the event. Our top three sponsorship levels are also recognized on our event invitation and in a post-event press release.

We are deeply grateful to all of our sponsors who partner with us to support our students' success. Their investment will pay dividends for our entire community.

  • Measurable outcomes that lead to college graduation and community leadership
  • An employment pipeline of talented individuals from diverse backgrounds
  • Civic-minded scholars engrained with the responsibility to lead, give back and nurture growth in others

Sponsorship is just one of several ways to partner with Rainier Scholars. Please contact Bethany Furubayashi, Corporate Giving Officer, at (206) 407-2181 or by email to learn more.
