Business & Corporate Sponsorship

Invest in Social Justice

Sponsoring TMI Project is an opportunity for your business to effect transformative change in our community. Since 2010, TMI Project has provided a platform to diverse storytellers to share powerful stories that are not often heard. Their work shines a spotlight on anti-racism, gender equality, LGBTQIA+ rights, reproductive justice, and mental health awareness and inspires action for social justice. 

As our business sponsor, you’ll reach up to 2,500 audience members in Ulster County and 68,500 individuals throughout the rest of the U.S. and the world. 

Our audience members are energized, socially conscious consumers who intentionally invest in local, like-minded businesses. Aligning with the mission of TMI Project lets customers know you support the voices and lives of local community members who need you most.

Business and Corporate Sponsorships offer substantial community engagement benefits and visibility.

Sponsorship packages are customized to suit your budget and business goals. They can include but are not limited to:

  • Digital ad placement displayed prominently and verbal “stage” acknowledgments during webinars, online workshops, virtual performances, documentary releases with virtual viewing parties and online panel discussions, and other public programs throughout the year
  • Your logo displayed prominently on our materials (print and digital)
  • Blog post interviews  
  • Social media shoutouts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram)
  • Logo placement with hyperlink in our monthly E-newsletter

Becoming a TMI Project Business Sponsor will turn our dedicated, socially-minded audience into your new, loyal customers while branding your business as an investor of social responsibility. Align with social justice movement building in a deeply personal way: through radically candid, true storytelling that ignites human connection, challenges the status quo, and inspires both storytellers and listeners to take action for positive social change.

Your support will help elevate the voices of all people, especially those from historically marginalized communities.

“Wild Earth supports TMI Project because they continue to center the voices of those who are least represented in the media. TMI Project provides opportunities for those individuals to become powerful storytellers. Oral storytelling has always been a powerful method of shaping culture, and Wild Earth wants future generations to learn from the experiences of the diverse swath of identities living today.”
-Omari Washington, Executive Director, Wild Earth
