Bartram Partnerships represents select property clients, connecting their sponsorship opportunities with relevant brand partners. In representing these sponsored properties, we provide brands’ access to higher-value opportunities.
Although developing and activating strategic partnership programs is part of our core skill set, we also help corporate clients find the highest-impact, most strategically aligned and relevant corporate sponsorships for their brands. That means helping brands facilitate and develop partnerships with the right properties—the best properties with beneficial programs—whether we represent their sponsorship opportunities or not.
These exclusive partnerships are the perfect opportunity for brands to connect with and engage their audiences, while aligning with beloved sports, sustainability and cause-oriented organizations.

Grounded Summit 2020
Grounded Summit 2020 will take place March 19-20 in the majestic Sonoma wine country, building off of the inspiring inaugural award-winning 2019 event. The Grounded audience is comprised of thought leaders, social influencers, international activists, government officials, and corporate executives who all share one common attribute: a burning desire to protect the planet. Grounded was established in 2018 to identify and accelerate scalable solutions to the climate crisis. Founded by emerging environmental leader Julia Jackson of Jackson Family Wines, Grounded identifies, connects, and advances climate solutions through an annual summit, grants, and partnerships. Our goal is to collaboratively shift the response to climate change and to scale proven solutions. Grounded is seeking strategic partners who believe in our solutions-oriented mission and to foster connections with a passionate community of change agents.
30th Anniversary of Sea Lions in San Francisco
To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the sea lions’ residency at Pier 39, Aquarium of the Bay is celebrating with Sea Lions in San Francisco. The campaign, to roll out later this year, will educate the public about climate change and its impact on the San Francisco Bay, the home of the beloved sea lions. With 30 six-foot-tall Sea Lion Statues, designed by a diverse array of talented artists, placed in high-traffic locations spread around the San Francisco, the campaign will be impossible to miss. Media partners and promotions based at the home of the sea lions, PIER 39, and the project owners at the Aquarium of the Bay will amplify the program—and its sponsors. Your sponsorship of one or more of these Sea Lion Statues will support Bay.org’s mission to protect, restore and inspire conservation of the San Francisco Bay and its watershed, from the Sierra to the Sea™, while supporting STEAM Education programs for schools.
Green Sports Alliance
The Green Sports Alliance leverages the cultural and market influence of sports to promote healthy, sustainable communities where people live and play. We welcome brands and properties that want to further sustainability through sport. Alliance members represent nearly 600 sports teams and venues from 15 sports leagues in 14 countries. As a partner member of the Green Sports Alliance, we are able to help devise programs that drive use of sustainability products and practices to influence environmentally friendly behavior through sports and entertainment venues and organizations.
Willis Tower, formerly known as the Sears Tower, is not just a staple of the Chicago skyline, it’s an iconic American symbol of ingenuity and power. For the first time, this American Icon is available for sponsorship, allowing brands the opportunity to align with the various features of the building and to access the audiences that visit and pass by the structure. Skydeck Chicago is one of the most visited attractions in the region and is now available for major brand partnerships; a new 4-story retail and dining center is being designed for a late 2019 opening; and new concierge floors and shared work space allow for engagement with the 25k workers that descend on the Tower every day. With over 10 million people passing through the doors every year, Willis Tower is a high-traffic urban destination offering extraordinary visibility and audience engagement for select corporate partners. Brands are still being sought for retail, entertainment and vendor opportunities too!
