UPWA is supported by community sponsors who care about connecting people to the marine environment. Our sponsors endorse our efforts to inspire the creation and activation of public docks and landings. Sponsors benefit in many ways including public exposure through underwriting our community outreach campaigns and program communication channels.

UPWA provides a bridge between small maritime enterprises and government to create self-sustaining public sites that enrich shoreline communities for all citizens.

Sponsorship can be localized to specific communities or applied to regional waterfront activity programs. UPWA provides a conduit for giving support to tactical efforts that connect people with the sea while delivering value to our sponsors.

Please contact us today if your organization is interested in sponsoring a specific community dock site or one of our many affiliated activity programs.
