Bartram Sponsorship Strategies (BSS) develops creative sponsorship programs that serve the strategic and bottom-line needs of world-class organizations. With over two decades of experience developing major sponsorships, partnerships, and events for high profile clients, BSS is the premier independent sponsorship agency in Northern California.
The Bay Area is awash with major sponsor-friendly properties, and BSS has direct access to leadership at the most prominent venues, events, and teams actively seeking sponsors and strategic partners. Conversely, as a representative of unique and high-profile properties, BSS enjoys solid relationships with the most active corporate sponsors in the region.
Our approach to sponsorship is based on value exchange to ensure that each organization’s objectives are met through a sharing of assets. We often work with nonprofits, but our approach is more commercial and ROI-driven than traditional fundraising. With each client, we seek to elevate partnership to the next level of ingenuity and profitability.
Partnership is about much more than serving one’s own interests. The most successful programs include a strong social mission that provides lasting, meaningful benefit for communities served by each organization. That’s why sustainability and social cause elements are embedded in so many of the programs we create.
We provide sponsorship consulting services for properties and for corporate clients:
- For companies seeking involvement in Bay Area sports, entertainment, and cultural venues and events, we offer guidance, strategic planning, sponsorship development, and negotiation services.
- For first class properties seeking an experienced sponsorship perspective, we offer a variety of program development services and access to our numerous corporate relationships.
