Become a Corporate Champion


Corporate Champions Package

The Alice Ferguson Foundation is launching its Corporate Champions Campaign, designed to garner sustained support for the thousands of area students served each year through our environmental education day and overnight programs. As a premier provider of hands-on learning for more than six decades, we have touched the lives of nearly half a million students, adult learners, and teachers. Our commitment to enhancing our communities extends to our Trash Free Potomac Watershed Initiative, which seeks to eliminate litter in our neighborhoods and waterways. Our historic 330 acre working farm also supports robust sustainable agriculture, arts, and cultural heritage programs.

Your support will:

  • Ensure no public school student pays for overnight programs at our Hard Bargain Farm Education Campus
  • Furnish all necessary scientific equipment and supplies for field studies                                              Download the Sponsorship Application
  • Provide bus transportation for student participation in programs
  • Enhance STEM-based learning in our new state-of-the-art education building
  • Supply thousands of volunteers with training, bags, and gloves for the annual Potomac River Watershed Cleanup
  • Enable an annual gathering of business, government, nonprofit, and community leaders to focus on solutions to the pervasive problem of litter
  • Help to host major community events annually (see attached)
  • Sustain a robust community theater program and concert series
  • Facilitate the operation and maintenance of our unique property, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places

Corporate giving offers wide-ranging bottom line benefits, including closer relationships with community leaders and officials, greater client loyalty, increased positive name recognition and brand awareness, a competitive advantage in attracting and retaining employees, and enhanced reputation and standing in the community.
