Showcase Your Leadership as a Summit Sponsor

Partners of the 2024 Summit will help drive the adoption of new strategies to reduce direct climate impacts of colleges and universities and inform endowment investing strategies that accelerate a just transition to a carbon-neutral economy.

As a partner, you also demonstrate your climate leadership and help support the critical movement-building efforts of Second Nature and the Intentional Endowments Network.
