Become a Sponsor
Over the coming months, our volunteers are working on several programs that would welcome your sponsorship and partnership.
Our opportunities range from a new, nighttime cultural event and economic development webinars to a major initiative for nighttime safety and community respect.
If you, your business, or your organization sees the importance and value of this work in Dallas, we would like to talk to you about the sponsor and partner opportunities.
24HourDallas Ignite the Night Festival
Sponsorships are now available for the second 24HourDallas Ignite the Night Festival–a culture-filled evening with artisans and local vendors.
During the pandemic, we discovered the value of hosting monthly webinars on Zoom. Depending on the topic, registrations ranged from 30 to 100 participants.
Perhaps you would be interested in sponsoring one of these.
We still have in-person meetings planned where our business and organizational members and individual members come together.
Your business might want to get in front of these members as a sponsor. Or your hotel or venue might be willing to host a meeting, pro bono.
24HourDallas plans to pilot a program with a team of volunteers as a peaceful and helpful presence on the sidewalks of some of Dallas’ sociable districts.
Our twist? We seek lay and leader volunteers from the interfaith community. Kindness and peacemaking presence can make a difference.
Your faith or social service organization can partner with us. Or you may choose to sponsor this program so we can train and provide volunteers with what they need, including identifiable attire.
Help us help take racial stigma and fear out of Dallas’ nighttime economy.
We want to ensure that all people have access to a safe and responsible social economy … as customers and as entrepreneurs. Microaggressions and stereotypes hold us all down.
We seek sponsors of a workplace training for nighttime businesses. We also seek support as we develop tools for new businesses to open at night. Your business, organization, or public agency may be a perfect match.
Women’s Nighttime Safety and Women U-Night
Every woman—whether at her evening job, on a date, or patronizing a business or sociable district at night—has the right to be safe.
24HourDallas volunteers are going to take a stand on this. We also invite nighttime businesses and women from across all socio-demographics in Dallas to stand with us.
Be a sponsor of this program or partner with 24HourDallas if you also value the safety of women in Dallas’ nighttime ecosystem.
Good Neighbor Initiative
Inspired by two European programs, 24HourDallas has launched a voluntary accreditation project for nighttime sociable businesses.
Through our Copper Star program, nars, restaurants, hotels, arts and cultural organizations, music venues, convenience stores, public spaces, and more are able to receive credentials as respectful and safe operators.
This program will recognize nighttime businesses that:
- advocate for responsible alcohol consumption.
- mitigate hate crimes.
- ensure women’s safety.
- intervene in human and sex trafficking.
- work proactively with government agencies.
With many moving parts, we have sponsorship opportunities for businesses and important partnership opportunities for non-profit organizations and government entities.
