Be a Coalition Partner

Your organization, agency or business can be a part of this community-wide effort by becoming a GKO Coalition Partner.

As a partner, you support the GKO mission by actively participating in one or more ways: Distribution Site, Opportunity Provider and/or Collaborator.

There are no fees for becoming a coalition partner. We ask that partners offer in-kind services and/or products as they are able (.e.g. printing flyers, supplying small materials for workshops or outdoor programming, donating door prizes).

Coalition partners are featured on the GKO website, marketing materials and/or at community events as feasible. We will use your logo to promote your programs/events.

In return, we ask that coalition partners use the GKO logo and website on your program/event advertising to spread the word and “brand” this as a community-wide effort.

Let us know how you would like to get involved:

Distribution Site
Display GKO marketing materials at your site and/or distribute them through your programs.

Opportunity Provider
Do you offer programs/events that get kids outdoors? Post your programs/events on the GKO website or give us your materials to distribute at community events.

Collaborator
Collaborate with GKO and its partners to be involved in special events, pilot programs and/or promotions.

Partner with us on a special event to bring kids to your site or get kids/families outdoors.

Put a “Getting Kids Outdoors” spin on what you already do.
(i.e., no need to reinvent the wheel – tweak it and promote it as a GKO effort such as selling outdoor toys/clothes, hosting kids story hours or offering outdoor programs).

Partner with us at a community tie-in event to gain exposure
(e.g., donate a door prize for our GKO booth, help with kids nature activities or lead a family hike at the Festival by the Bay event.)

Be part of a pilot program that then will be offered in other parts of Northern Michigan.

The possibilities for collaborations are limitless! Get inspired and click here for a listing of collaborative events.
