Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsorship OpportunitiesThe following list details events, programs, and services that are in need of sponsorship at Whistlestop. For each opportunity, we are happy to discuss public recognition options that may be of interest to match your charitable corporate goals.


Whistlestock IV
September 24, 2017
Marin Rod & Gun Club | San Rafael
Show your commitment to Marin’s seniors by partnering with Whistlestop for Whistlestock IV!
Sponsors will be widely acknowledged before, during, and after the event.


Multicultural Intergenerational Exchange
This unique program gives native Spanish-speaking older adults the opportunity to share their culture and language with local high school English-speaking students who are learning Spanish.  Here are a few quotes from the students:

“Thank you so much for helping us practice our colloquial Spanish!  It has helped a lot. I appreciate how patient and easy-going you have been. I realize it can be hard to listen to teenagers who are butchering your native language. Your visits have shown me that what we are learning in class has a real world application: conversing with people! Thank you again.” – Sam B., a Junior

“It was a pleasure to talk to you all when you came to Drake High School. I was fascinated by all of your lives and the interesting experiences you’ve had. I feel as though I learned beyond Spanish and learned the rich history with which each one of you holds. It was a great learning experience.” Jamison B. Sophomore

A sponsorship of this program could help us grow the frequency of visits and variety of schools we could visit.  A sponsorship of $5,000 would help to cover transportation, staff, lunch for the older adults and supply costs.

Meals on Wheels Route Sponsorship
The Meals on Wheels (MOW) service provides weekly home delivered meals from a friendly face to over 250 homebound older adults around Marin County. While federal funding helps cover part of the program’s costs, we must rely on our community to make up the difference. A Meals on Wheels route sponsorship is a wonderful opportunity to help raise awareness about the program and demonstrate your commitment to older adults in our community. A $1,000 sponsorship will provide a magnetic sign on our volunteer driver’s vehicle with your company’s name or logo for the month of your sponsorship. Click here for more details.

Jackson Café Food
The Jackson Café offers a friendly atmosphere where everyone is welcome to dine, but those 60 or better get a full lunchtime meal for only $6.00 for members and $8.00 for non-members.  The meals are deliciously prepared by the student graduates from the New Beginnings Culinary Academy. Our corporate giving program sponsors the food costs in the café for a period of three months for $5,000. For the duration of the sponsorship, we provide large appreciation, recognition signs (16″ x 48″) on the backs of two of our para-transit buses, signs on every table in the café and a ¼ page acknowledgment in our monthly Whistlestop Express newsletter with a distribution of 25,000 throughout Marin.
