5 Ways to Grow Your Business header

Business Partnership Program

Receive special access to nature-based team experiences and learning, encourage well-being among your employees, demonstrate your company's commitment to the environment, and grow affinity for your brand.  You'll do all this and more as a Business Partner of the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.

The Arboretum's Business Partnership Program provides resources for business growth (think offsite, nature-inspired team-building and strategic planning work sessions). It strengthens the impact of essential environmental educational experiences for learners of all ages and boosts the Arboretum's ability to scale conservation and research initiatives for global economic impact. 

Arboretum Rewards and Uniquely Arboretum Features grow teams, increase employee engagement and morale, and provide nature-based resources to help boost your bottom line.  Partnership benefits include recognition in Arboretum-owned media, discounts, unrestricted small group access for employees and priority access to team volunteer opportunities. Connect your organization's commitment to the environment with real-life, hands-on experiences in the highly sought-after Arboretum setting.

A business concierge assigned to each partner connects each partner with Arboretum resources to enhance relationships with clients, foster creativity and team-building, and provide facility access for staff retreats, strategic planning, and healthy, green off-the-clock time family fun.

Additionally, the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum offers a diverse range of corporate giving and sponsorship opportunities that enable your company to support the community, reach your target audience and build brand affinity with purpose-driven initiatives.  We work with your company to create an integrated sponsorship package tailored to your marketing, sales and promotional objectives.

The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization and its Federal Identification Number is 23-7081057.

Revenue from business membership and sponsorship is used for annual operating support, for specific exhibits and events, and contributions are directed where the need is greatest. The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization and its Federal Identification Number is 23-7081057.
