Become a Sponsor

Become an Official Sponsor of Operation Backpack® 2018

You can demonstrate your support of children in need in our community by becoming an official Operation Backpack® (OBP) Sponsor.

Benefits of sponsorship range from exclusive press releases announcing your support, logo placement on print and digital marketing collateral and social media acknowledgement, to VIP invitations to special events and receiving a shareable video featuring your team's OBP involvement. Last year for instance, sponsors participated in ringing the closing bell at the NYSE and participated in a home plate ceremony at a Yankees vs. Red Sox game and watched the game from a luxury suite.

Check out the more than 260+ companies and organizations contributing to the success of Operation Backpack® by organizing drives, sponsoring the campaign, fielding CrowdRise teams to fundraise on our behalf and more. We hope that you will join us again, or for the first time, this year and if you can, become an Official Operation Backpack® 2018 Sponsor!
