Business Sponsorship & Underwriting


Nantucket Land & Water Council Annual Business Sponsorship provides general operating and sponsorship support for our annual State of the Harbor Forum, where this support is recognized. To inquire about 2024 Business Sponsorships, please contact NLWC Development Director Michelle Whelan.

THANK YOU to our
2023 Annual Business Sponsors:


In 2023, for the first time, the Nantucket Land & Water Council (NLWC) and the Almanack Arts Colony (AAC) will offer the opportunity to underwrite our annual Friends Fête event!

Now in its fourth year, the Friends Fête is a highly popular, well-attended event co-hosted by the NLC and the AAC and held at the beautiful Almanack Arts Colony property in Polpis. A fun and exciting event featuring live music, a raw bar, cocktails, and heavy hors d’oeuvres by Nantucket Catering Company, the annual Friends Fête draws more than 175 guests, mostly between the ages of 25 – 45. Many of our attendees are among the island’s “young philanthropists.”

Underwriting helps defray the costs associated with holding an outdoor event on the island, thereby making this event a fundraiser and a “friend-raiser” and increasing the amount ultimately raised toward general operating support for both organizations!

Friends Fête Underwriters!
