SWU Sponsorship

Become A Sponsor!

Do you have an organization or company which aligns with our mission and vision you would like to showcase? Please consider becoming a sponsor for our most popular event! This event fills up every year and reaches hundreds of people. Your contributions help us bring great speakers, topics, and now field trips to the public. Your support is vital to help us work in and around Island County for a healthy, sustainable marine environment. Sponsoring Sound Waters University is a great way to showcase your organization’s or company’s commitment to environmental stewardship and receive a specialized sponsor package.

Sound Waters University (SWU) – presented by Sound Water Stewards (SWS) – is the largest educational activity and fundraiser of Sound Water Stewards 501(c)(3) non-profit of Island County. Sound Waters University 2023, with its theme “Resilience – from Old Growth Trees to the Life of the Salish Sea,” will include two keynote speakers and nine informative classes virtually, on the ability of the Salish Sea ecosystem to withstand and adapt to climate change, pollution, and habitat loss.
