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.

San Francisco Chamber of Commerce
The San Francisco Chamber of Commerce has been thrust into the most vital role of virtually any organization in the San Francisco market as the association leads the road to recovery in the city’s business community. Serving a wide range of companies, from mom and pop stores to some of the largest corporations in the world, the SF Chamber has a vital constituency to serve. Chamber members are committed to addressing the needs of the city’s residents through a sense of shared economic resiliency, never more tested than it is now as a result of the pandemic. We are serving the Chamber in an effort to engage a greater number of corporations that are dependent on a thriving San Francisco and a healthy Bay Area economy. Currently this means sponsoring critical programs, virtual events and webinars designed to help steer members and other interested organizations toward recovery and prosperity. Eventually we look to return to our original charge of developing partners to support events, member programs and environmental resiliency – in the meantime, we welcome all to join the SF Chamber’s commitment to rebuilding a better San Francisco through connection and partnership.
American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.)
As the leading theater arts organization in San Francisco, the American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) has long set the standard for live theater and for training the next generation of theatrical performers. A.C.T. entertains 250,000 people a year at a series of diverse shows that range from the top Broadway titles like this fall’s exclusive west coast stop of The Lehman Trilogy to the critically-acclaimed Toni Stone and Gloria, whose runs were cut due to the coronavirus pandemic. Our charge is to develop naming rights partners for A.C.T.’s two thriving venues – the modern, highly visible Strand and the historic and stately Geary. However, with the country and region now shifting focus to recovery, we invite companies to support the arts and specifically A.C.T. and its dozens of talented staff, performers, stagehands and students by sponsoring its diverse array of shows planned for the 2020-21 season. Please contact us for more information and we can plan a grand partnership to help A.C.T. advance into its next generation of entertaining and inspiring Bay Area theater-goers and the thousands of students accessing their life-changing programs.
Grounded Summit 2020 was to take place in late March in the majestic Sonoma wine country, building off of the inspiring inaugural award-winning 2019 event. Unfortunately, the summit was cancelled due to the pandemic leaving so many speakers, sponsors and attendees disappointed. Sponsors developed for the summit included Bank of the West, Jackson Family Wines, Alaska Airlines, Salesforce, Impossible, Just, Miyoko’s, Equator Coffee and others. The Grounded audience of thought leaders, social influencers, international activists, government officials and corporate executives are bound by the commitment to protect the planet from the unquestionable reality of climate change. 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 was started to identify and advance climate solutions through a range of activities and partnerships with a goal of collaboratively shifting the response to climate change and to scale proven solutions. Grounded is developing its next round of activity and will soon be seeking strategic partners who believe in a solutions-oriented approach to addressing our climate crisis.
