The Fund for a Better Waterfront depends on the funds we raise at our one big annual fundraising party – CONNECT THE WATERFRONT – each year. Sponsoring the event is a great way to support our work, promote your company, and show your customers your strong commitment to the community.

The event, which features an open bar, live music and hors d’oeuvres, will be held on Thursday, November 14, from 7 – 9 PM at the legendary Elks Club right here in Hoboken.

October 21, 2019 is the deadline to be included in pre-event promotional and on-site materials. FBW is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.

Sponsorship Levels & Benefits

Sponsorship Levels

Nearly 30 years ago, before any development had taken place at Hoboken’s riverfront, the Fund for a Better Waterfront drafted a plan for what the waterfront could be; the centerpiece of this plan – a continuous, public park at the water’s edge – became the driving force that established the park at Hoboken’s South Waterfront (from Newark to Fourth Street) that has received both state and national awards.

Today, there is an opportunity to finish the job, creating a High Line-caliber, fully-connected and undeniably public park along the full length of Hoboken’s waterfront –  a park that will serve as the economic heart of the city, bringing visitors from all over the world. Please consider becoming a CONNECT THE WATERFRONT sponsor. Your support is critical to making the vision of a world-class, public, continuous park a reality.
