Event Sponsorship Opportunities

After Dark is a popular gala event at our beautiful Woodend Nature Sanctuary in the evening light, when we welcome guests after regular visiting hours. As an After Dark sponsor, we will showcase your organization’s community leadership to more than 40,000 members, supporters, and visitors from across the DMV. Sponsorship aligns your brand directly with positive, powerful, and popular environmental conservation and education programs that engage youth, families, veterans, and a diverse audience of nature enthusiasts, including our top individual donors.

After Dark features fun, engaging programming including: select hors d’oeuvres and a gourmet buffet dinner, a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with wildlife in our region; meeting and mingling with Nature Forward leadership, great photo ops, and a silent auction. We invite your organization to become a beacon bearer for our vision of building a larger, more diverse community of people who treasure the natural world and work to preserve it.
