Business Sponsorship 2020

Southold Historical Society is a vibrant, active, local organization that is in need of your attention.  We are seeking BUSINESS SPONSORS for 2020.  Your Business Sponsorship will support the Historical Society in its efforts to improve historical collections and to focus on increased community involvement.  The Society is energized with the leadership of our new Director.  We are enthusiastically reaching out to involve greater business participation in making history come alive in Southold.


Specifically, your Sponsorship will help us to achieve at least the following planned programs and events:

  • Historical Lecture Series – all year

  • Ice Cream Social in August  - returning after a few years’ absence

  • Seasonal exhibitions at the Lighthouse Museum and Museum Complex

  • Candlelight Tour in November – a community favorite

  • Refurbishment of permanent exhibits


Business Sponsorships will be at the level of: $500, $1,000, $2000 or more.  With so many means of communication, the Society will be displaying the names of Business Sponsors in e-mails, on our website, on posted signs and on printed programs at select events and via verbal recognition when appropriate.


Your support will truly make a difference.  

Thank you for your consideration and support.
