Business Support

We are fortunate to live in a state and a community with an incredibly supportive business community and grateful that dozens of these businesses choose to sponsor our events and programs, aligning their brand with ours.

In June 2014, the Damariscotta Region Chamber of Commerce awarded DRA its community service organization of the year award for “adding to the region’s quality of life.”

Our members tell us they like to patronize businesses that underwrite community conservation and education through the Damariscotta River Association, and we encourage them to do so.

A $100 annual Business Membership is the entry level for DRA business support, with $500 River Council Business Member an increasingly popular level.

Sponsorships for specific prominent events and programs typically start at $500 and rise to $2,000 for lead sponsorships. All levels make a difference! For more information about current business sponsorship opportunities, please connect with our Executive Director or a member of our board.
