Be a Sponsor
Without the support of our local businesses and community, the LBIF would not be able to preserve the arts/sciences/culture on LBI and the surrounding areas. Sponsorship at the LBIF helps to support LBIF’s mission of offering affordable arts and sciences programs to the LBI and surrounding community. Since we are a nonprofit organization, the more we receive, the more we give.
You are invited to become general sponsor or to lend you support to an activity or activity of special interest to you or to you customer base. Sponsorship opportunities are available on a general or event-specific basis.
THE BLAI SOCIETY – $2,500

In the early days, LBIF served a small but growing summertime, beach community but times have changed. Today, the LBIF has expanded to meet the needs of a much greater community-at-large. In the last five years, the LBIF has expanded into a year-round organization. During 2019, over 7,000 people attended events produced by our programs, events, classes, performances, volunteer days, and not-for-profit partners. Everything we do is open to the public and nearly everyone can find something of interest.
Be a part of the excitement! A sample of some of our upcoming events and gallery exhibitions available for sponsorship opportunities:
– SCIENCE SATURDAYS
Science Saturday at the LBIF tackles today’s most pressing scientific, environmental, and sustainability issues that directly affect our shore community and the Barnegat Bay. Science Saturdays are interactive and informative hands-on presentations in an informal atmosphere.
– GALLERY EXHIBITIONS
The LBIF gallery hosts free exhibitions year-round to enable arts education, introduction to new media, and stimulation for the mind and senses. Exhibits range from internationally known artists working in a wide range of media to community based shows highlighting the work of the talented local community and its artists.
– INDEPENDENT FILMS
The LBIF is expanding its offering of independent films and documentaries and is planning for weekly and bi-weekly viewings. Screened throughout the year, including the Lighthouse International Film Festival, LBIF hosts a variety of films and film festivals year-round, offering movies you won’t find anywhere else.
– BARNEGAT BAY DAY
This is a family learning experience with lots of hands-on activities and lots of opportunities to learn about the critters and plants living underwater and on the land in the Barnegat Bay ecosystem. Have a blast participating in activities and guided tours of the natural beauty of LBIF’s marsh. While you’re here, check out the LBIF Camp’s miniaquarium and participate in a science-themed craft!
– MUSICAL PERFORMANCES & CLASSICAL CONCERTS
Introducing LBIF’s new program “Sundays @ Six”! Our highly popular and successful jazz and music programs have expanded this season to offer a diverse and lively line-up. Offerings include a bluegrass evening and a brass band with patriotic songs to celebrate the 4th plus a return of internationally acclaimed tenor, James Valenti, with contemporary singing partner, Chloe Lowery. Sara Michaels, jazz & blues vocalist and Harvey Cedars resident, gives an introduction to the jazz concerts to get the audience tuned in to appreciate and enjoy the special evening.
– FINE ARTS FESTIVAL
Our Annual Juried Foundation Arts Festival is one of the LBIF’s largest fundraisers. Each admission fee goes directly to helping sustain the arts and cultural programs at the LBIF. On Friday evening, we host a ticketed Preview Party in our gallery with music, food, drinks, and socializing. With more than 60 artists working in jewelry, wood, ceramics, photography, clothing and painting, you’re bound to find something you’ll love. Spend the day shopping, and stay for the live music, food trucks, and more.
– SEASHORE OPEN HOUSE TOUR
Tour six exquisite homes that capture the history of LBI and its renowned architecture. The tour will feature houses chosen for their unique style, lush landscaping, dynamic interior décor, and energy efficiency. They include oceanfront, bayfront, large and petite, new and old from Barnegat Light to Ship Bottom – there is something for everyone!
