We have many partnership opportunities for local and regional businesses and corporations.

OysterFest, Bay Day, Kids ABOUT the Bay, Wild About Cumberland (with Citizens United to Protect the Maurice River,) and Port Norris Rotary's Run for the Schooner each have marvelous marketing and public relations potential as well as a great "bang for the buck" with return on investment and community benefits.

It costs a lot of money to run the A J Meerwald and to stage the many educational programs that we offer each year at the Bayshore Center at Bivalve. Knowing how financially challenged many of our constituents in Cumberland County are, we keep our program fees as low as possible in order to reach the maximum amount of students of all ages. Therefore, we offer many opportunities throughout the year to businesses and individuals to sponsor our activities. Opportunities run the gamut from sponsoring an art reception at a Second Friday, to sponsoring a table at OysterFest for your business, or helping defray the costs of taking children on a wetlands walk, a sail, or one of our free educational days such as Kids About the Bay or Wild About Cumberland.

We will be happy to work with you to craft a sponsorship that will fill your needs. Please call the Bayshore Center at 856-785-2060 to discuss the possibilities. We are grateful for each and every dollar that is donated, and we are very careful in how we spend them. We make a dollar go farther than many organizations because our message is important and we want to be able to reach as many people as possible. We would love to help you get the word out about your business and let people know that you, too, value our Bayshore Heritage. Thank you for your contribution!
