Community Partner Participation

Local businesses and organizations can be a part of NSU CommunityFest by donating food or drawing prizes, or by becoming a sponsor for a pre-selected attraction or event.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Community Partners can sponsor pre-selected attractions or events for NSU CommunityFest. They may also give outright financial contributions toward the event, as well as donate prizes for drawings to be held throughout the event. Please refer to the Sponsorship Agreement Form under Participation Forms for a list of items to sponsor or for more information on outright contributions. If you would like to sponsor an item that we did not include in the form or would like to know what still is available, please contact us.

Food Vendor Opportunities

Food Vendors have the perfect opportunity to showcase their product at NSU CommunityFest 2017. Additionally, CommunityFest will match half of your donation up to $2,500. For more information, please refer to the External Vendor Agreement Form under Participation Forms.

Activity Booths

Mako, Silver, and Blue Sponsors are invited to host activity booths at NSU CommunityFest. Since the university's non-solicitation policy generally does not allow businesses to come onto campus to advertise, this is a perfect opportunity for sponsoring businesses and organizations to put up a banner, bring their mascot, and/or hand out flyers or coupons at their booth. If you are such a sponsor and are interested in hosting such a booth, please complete the External Vendor Agreement or Sponsorship Agreement by January 27, 2017.
