CDC Corporate Sponsorship Program

The CDC corporate sponsorship program offers companies a chance to join the University of Nevada in its ongoing effort to reach out to larger Las Vegas and improve the quality of life in our community. The program is based on the premise that there is more than one way to help the common cause. Your company can aid our efforts by supporting the Center’s programs financially. You might also take active part in Justice & Democracy Forums, coach high school students preparing for mock trial competitions, provide judges for the Federal Court contest “We the People,” subsidize a training seminar on emotional intelligence, entertain a foreign business delegation looking for investment opportunities, sponsor a luncheon honoring J & D forum panelists, underwrite a CDC publication, cheer on the sidelines for the home team – there is no shortage of creative ways for those willing to get involved and make a difference.

The CDC executive board would be glad to meet with your company representatives and help you identify specific ways in which your firm or business can join forces with us in advancing civic culture in our community. We shall also explain the benefits that your association with the UNLV Center for Democratic Culture will confer on your organization. There are several tangible ways in which your company can benefit from this partnership:

  • The name of your organization will appear on the UNLV website, along with the description of your company and its contribution to civic life in the city of Las Vegas and the State of Nevada;
  • Your company logo will be prominently displayed in CDC publications, its corporate sponsorship highlighted in the J & D Forum book series and the Nevada Law Journal publications;
  • You will be invited to attend an annual dinner with CDC board members honoring corporate sponsors;
  • We shall assist your organization in developing a state of the art web site, a corporate letterhead, and a corporate logo through the services of award-winning designers associated with the Center;
  • CDC professionals will offer your organization a free seminar on the role of emotional intelligence in the workplace;
  • You will have a chance to shape the project “CIVITAS: The Alliance for Public Culture & Democracy” that advances public culture and discourse in Las Vegas and Southern Nevada;
  • Above all, you will have a sense of satisfaction and well-earned pride knowing that you pull your weight in the community and further civic life in Las Vegas and Nevada.

We understand that the company’s ability to participate in a corporate giving program is constrained by many factors – the organization’s size, profit margins, prevailing economic conditions – and we are ready to sit down with each potential sponsor and work out a realistic, flexible plan that would allow your organization to make a contribution in kind, in cash, in good cheer, or any other way. You may start with one form of assistance, supplement it with another in due course, and move to a new level of giving altogether when the circumstances warrant.
