Sponsorship Opportunities

The Glen Ellyn Park District offers a variety of sponsorship opportunities for businesses and community associates to enhance their existing marketing exposure, increase sales, and extend visibility. Support from local businesses helps the District offer events that provide our residents the chance to spend time together, have fun, and meet new friends. As a largely tax-supported agency, sponsor funds can help offset event costs, making it possible for the District to increase offerings.
