Join us for Ecology Ottawa’s 9th annual Gala Dinner on Thursday, November 26, 2015 at the St. Elias Banquet Centre to celebrate the active environmental community in Ottawa and the start of the Winter Holiday season!
Eco Gala 2015 will include former Parliamentary Budget Officer Kevin Page as our guest speaker, along with a delicious four course dinner, a silent auction, and an opportunity to connect with the people and community groups growing the environmental movement. This event sells out every year and for 2015 we plan to have over 550 guests attend. This is a great way to support Ecology Ottawa’s important outreach and community building projects while having fun.

Our annual dinner would not be possible without the great support of sponsors
In an increasingly competitive market, corporate social responsibility as well as sustainability initiatives have never been more important to local companies. Attracting environmentally conscious clients is seen as one of the leading strategies for growing and expanding a business. Partnering with Ecology Ottawa is an opportunity for your company to directly support ongoing environmental initiatives in Ottawa and associate your business with a progressive and forward thinking not-for-profit organization.
We are currently accepting sponsors and would like to discuss opportunities with you. Benefits to our sponsors are numerous and include advertisement at the dinner and promotion in various forms. We have over 60,000 supporters and a volunteer base of over 1,000 people, with these numbers growing every day! Over 6,000 local residents have directly donated to our organization. We reach a large number of people through our social media platforms and our bi-weekly newsletter. We also have a number of partners in Ottawa, including community groups, non-profit organizations and businesses that support our initiatives. This year for our annual Great Glebe GREEN Garage Sale, another Ecology Ottawa event, we had over 50 sponsors.
Businesses in Ottawa know that their customers are environmentally conscious and appreciate their efforts to make positive change in the community. Partnering with Ecology Ottawa allows you to reach all of these individuals, network at our Gala Dinner, and gain recognition as a local environmental leader. We are seeking cash sponsors for the event and/or donations of food and silent auction items. Please contact us for more details on the partnership offerings at 613-860-5353.
