Partnerships & sponsorship
The community vision reflected in Imagine Kelowna recognizes that the well-being of our city is a shared responsibility and everyone needs to do their part to seize opportunities for improvement. Partnerships and sponsorships which provide economic and social benefits, and use a balanced approach to mobilizing resources, are an effective way to meet community needs.
We have a long history of engaging in partnerships with businesses, non-profit and charitable organizations and service groups. Through these relationships, many cherished community programs, services, facilities and amenities were established and continue to thrive.
Partnerships can take many different forms but most partnerships include one or more of the following elements:
- Providing facilities, programs and services for the general public
- Access to/operation and maintenance of a City-owned asset (land and/or buildings)
- Administration of funding provided by the City
- Shared benefits, risks and responsibilities
More recently, we launched a sponsorship & advertising program to generate revenue that will be used to enhance facilities, programs and services for residents.
