    Sponsorship Opportunities to Connect with and Support the South Lake Union Community

    By supporting SLU Chamber events you are actively supporting the South Lake Union community. And because the SLU Chamber is a Nonprofit organization you are also adding to your Organization’s charitable and tax deductible giving.

    Did you know the SLU Chamber is entirely funded by its members? We don’t receive any state or city funding and are solely here to represent the views, needs and concerns of our community and business leaders. By sponsoring our events you help to ensure that South Lake Union business, small and large, continue to have a voice with lawmakers and that we continue to put community growth at the forefront of our priorities.

    SLU Chamber has over 200 members, most of which are small businesses, and range across all industries and trades. With commitment from our sponsors we contribute to the economic and social success of this community.

    To become a sponsor email director@sluchamber.org

    Thank you for your support!
