Partnerships & sponsorships

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.

Elements of a partnership

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
