Alliance Sponsorship Opportunities

imageThe Alliance for Biking & Walking is the North American coalition of more than 220 bicycle and pedestrian advocacy organizations in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Alliance organizations represent more than 190,000 dues-paying members and interact with countless more residents in their communities. With the assistance of the Alliance and its network of leaders and experts, advocates have the tools to transform their communities into great places to bike and walk.

Why sponsor the Alliance? Because…

  • The Alliance is growing — Our membership has skyrocketed from just 12 organizations in 1996 to more than 220 organizations in 2013.
  • The Alliance makes a difference on the ground — Research shows that significantly more people walk and bicycle in cities and states represented by Alliance organizations.
  • The Alliance helps to build your customer base — Alliance member organizations create tens of thousands of new bicyclists and walkers every year.

Your sponsorship is the catalyst for change across North America and gives your company repeated exposure in dozens of major markets. Your support builds brand loyalty among countless advocates and the hundreds of thousands of bicyclists and pedestrians they represent from coast to coast.

Advocacy Advance Program

Advocacy Advance is a powerful, action-oriented partnership between the Alliance and the League of American Bicyclists. This unique initiative zeroes in on the specific research, resources and technical assistance that bicycle and pedestrian advocates need to immediately propel their campaigns, dramatically grow their organizations and double the amount of federal funding for biking and walking projects by 2013. Your sponsorship of the Advocacy Advance Grants program elevates your company to the top tier of industry leaders who have made a high-level commitment to advancing the bicycle and pedestrian movement.
