Sponsorship Opportunities

Connect with our community.

For just $500, you can get your business in front of thousands by sponsoring one of our two flagship events: Azalea Festival Home Tour or Preservation Crawl. If you’re looking for even greater visibility and impact, consider stepping up as a presenting sponsor for one of our annual events or making a profound difference as an annual sponsor ($1,500). Our annual sponsors receive robust recognition throughout the year at all our major events, including the Azalea Festival Home Tour, Preservation Crawl, Annual Luncheon, Preservation Awards, Spring Market, Holiday Market, Annual Meeting, and more!

The higher the sponsorship level, the more opportunities to not only support local built history, but also to connect with the thousands of folks in our network. Our members (500+) appreciate and go out of their way to support the businesses that support preservation in our community. Folks who care about old buildings and understand the economic and cultural vitality that historic preservation provide will connect with like-minded others through sponsorship.

All sponsorships come with a free membership to the Historic Wilmington Foundation! (A fun perk: HWF members receive 15% off at Legacy Architectural Salvage.)

This is your invitation to shape history.

When you sponsor the Historic Wilmington Foundation, you’re becoming a vital part of an enduring mission that began in 1966: to preserve and protect the irreplaceable historic resources of Wilmington and the Lower Cape Fear region.

To become a sponsor, contact Isabelle Shepherd, Development Officer: shepherd@historicwilmington.org.



How do I make a payment for my sponsorship?

May I pay in installments?

We are happy to work with you to create a payment plan!
