2021 Sponsorship Opportunities
Corporate sponsorships enable ULI New York to create compelling educational programs, connect our members and deliver community impact initiatives like:
- UrbanPlan, ULI’s project-based learning curriculum where ULI members help high school and university students understand the fundamental forces that shape the built environment.
- UrbanPlan for Public Officials, ULI’s member-led workshops that enable public officials to better understand the trade-offs and risk at play in the entitlement and negotiation process associated with land use, especially in public-private partnerships (P3s).
- Technical Assistance Panels (TAPs), where ULI members volunteer their time and expertise to provide objective advice and practical solutions to local governments, public agencies and nonprofit organizations facing complex land use and real estate challenges throughout New York State.
Over the course of the past year, as the pandemic shut down all of ULI New York’s in-person activities, our volunteer leadership and ULI New York staff worked tirelessly to pivot the organization to a virtual programming model. Despite the challenges of operating virtually, we continued to successfully provide our members and sponsors with access to ULI’s high quality programming, network of multidisciplinary experts and best practice guidance.
In appreciation of the support we received from our 2020 sponsors and recognizing the challenges still confronting the industry as we recover from the pandemic, we are pleased to offer the following discounts on 2021 sponsorship packages:
- 50% discount on any Awards Gala-only sponsorship package for any returning 2020 Awards Gala-only sponsor.
- 33% discount on any Annual sponsorship package for any returning 2020 Annual sponsor.
- 10% discount on any Annual or Awards Gala-only sponsorship packages for any new sponsor.
Annual sponsorship packages include the 2021 Awards Gala—held in person at Cipriani Wall Street on November 3—where Kirk Goodrich, President of Monadnock Development, will be honored with our 2021 Visionary Leadership in Land Use Award.
Your sponsorship dollars in 2021 will provide the critically needed financial resources to support and expand ULI New York’s program of work, including:
- Engaging more public sector leaders through our Public Sector Engagement Strategy.
- Increasing the presence of young women of color in the real estate industry and ULI through our WLI-led REal Stories
- Expanding our local product councils, NEXT affinity group network, UrbanPlan and UrbanPlan for Public Officials workshops.
- Creating a hybrid programming model for members to engage with ULI NY virtually or in-person.
We will continue our focus on increasing diversity, equity and inclusion in ULI and the real estate industry, through programming, leadership trainings and strategic partnerships with diverse real estate organizations, like The Real Estate Executive Council (REEC) and The Real Estate Associate Program (REAP). ULI New York’s commitment to DEI emphasizes the importance of diversity to intentionally engage and leverage each of our members’ different perspectives to promote the change and advancement required to better create and sustain the thriving, resilient, and equitable communities that are the foundation blocks of ULI’s mission.
Now more than ever, we need the continued financial support of our corporate partners to build on our successes of the past year and work with the industry to navigate the new normal of a post-pandemic world.
