The C&O Canal Trust offers a number of sponsorship opportunities to individuals and organizations who support our work with the C&O Canal National Historical Park (NHP) each year. Please see below for current opportunities.

Canal Community Days Sponsorships

Parent and child pick up trash

Canal Community Days projects include campground and picnic area improvements, towpath and trail repairs, building maintenance and
historic preservation, invasive plant and trash removal, native landscaping, and more.

You – or your business – can make a direct impact on the experience of the nearly five million visitors of all ages expected to visit the C&O Canal NHP in 2022 for rest, recreation, and the enjoyment of nature and history. Become a Canal Community Days Sponsor, and enable the C&O Canal Trust to recruit and manage hundreds of volunteers throughout the year to undertake preservation, conservation, maintenance, and beautification projects along the 184.5-mile length of the canal from DC to Cumberland, Maryland.

We rely on the support of our Sponsors to help fund public volunteer projects each year. To show our gratitude for your commitment to the community, and the well-being of the C&O Canal NHP, the C&O Canal Trust offers a number of benefits, including signage in the Park and recognition on our website, social media, and in media releases. As a Canal Community Days Sponsor, you are demonstrating your
commitment to preservation, conservation, recreation, and economic development.
