Sponsorship Programs

Support the community and get your brand out there. Our District’s physical assets can be effective in reaching your target audience. The broad availability of partnership opportunities can be customized featuring a mix of our legacy events, communications and physical assets.

Bigbelly Trash & Recycling Bins

An eco-friendly addition to the neighborhood! As the BID continues to press for streetscape upgrades, we have installed 27 Bigbelly trash cans in prime locations. These receptacles have space to install signage for your business’s short-term, seasonal or long-term promotional campaigns. Touch base to discuss your needs.

Maintenance Staff Uniforms

These uniforms are worn by the maintenance staff in the North Flatbush district. These wearables would include a full array of warm and cold weather pieces – shirts, jackets, hats, etc. What a great way to reinforce your brand as our team diligently traverses the district keeping things tidy.

District Street Banners

We install eye-catching banners on our history street light poles along North Flatbush – promoting a sense of unity and place in the neighborhood. These banners can include your logo and will be hung in high-traffic areas near Barclays Center and Grand Army Plaza – see our transportation counts for daily reach. Discount pricing available for multiple banners – call our team to discuss.

Horticulture & Sidewalk Planters

North Flatbush has piloted the installation of large scale sidewalk planters full of evergreen and brightly colored annuals. Currently there are 35 locations but will soon expand to over 50 locations throughout the district. Greening the district with more plants and trees helps create a hospitable environment and ads visual interest to the corridor. If you want to support our effort and receive acknowledgement with an in-planter plaque, let’s chat.
