Sponsorship Opportunities

  • The Colorado School Public Relations Association (COSPRA) recognizes the mutual benefit possible when we partner with companies and organizations through sponsorships. 

    Beyond the financial support, which helps COSPRA accomplish its mission and goals, providing access to these entities can help members learn about potentially helpful products and services offered, as well as providing expanded opportunities to gain knowledge and skills from professionals in our industry.

    COSPRA has approximately 125 members representing more than 30 school districts across the state, including our largest districts of Denver Public Schools and Jeffco Public Schools as well as reaching to the western slope in Durango and Grand Junction and major metropolitan districts in northern and southern Colorado. We also have members from state-level organizations such as Colorado Departments of Education and Higher Education, the Colorado Association of School Executives, the Colorado Association of School Boards, the Colorado Education Initiative, and Great Education Colorado. Individual charter schools and the Colorado League of Charter Schools are also members.

    We offer many opportunities for companies to engage in meaningful conversation and networking with our members, as well as opportunities to present and promote both services and professional development being offered. These opportunities include our two largest events - our Spring and Fall Conference - as well as regional meetings held throughout the state each year. We maintain an active email listserv and Twitter presence at @GO_COSPRA. 

    There are many ways to financially contribute to and support the mission of Colorado public education communications:

    • We offer full-year sponsorships that will guarantee partners many touchpoints with our members throughout a calendar year.
    • We also offer individual event sponsorship, as well as creative opportunities that can be customized.
