Show Your Support, Become A Sponsor

AFN can help your company pursue exciting opportunities for partnerships, community investment, and sponsorship. The accomplishments and aspirations of our delegates from Ketchikan to Kaktovik are made possible through a cooperative spirit and commitment by sponsors like you. As a sponsor, your support exemplifies the Native values of giving and reciprocating in the spirit of community.

Community businesses and partners capitalize on the advertising and marketing opportunities to outreach to the Native community, often seeing an increase in business activities and engagement in building and strengthening valuable relationships. There are six levels of sponsorship for you to consider, with all-new benefits designed to make the sponsor's visibility even more robust.
