Brooklyn Community Pride Center Crown Heights

Naming Opportunities

With our 2021 expansion into a wonderful new headquarters space in Crown Heights, Brooklyn Community Pride Center is delighted to share with you an opportunity for your help to sustain our work and to celebrate LGBTQ+ Brooklynites.
We are offering 10-year naming rights on several aspects of the new space, giving you a unique opportunity to celebrate influential LGBTQ+ people and to obtain some long-lasting brand association with Brooklyn’s first and only community center serving the LGBTQ+ population.
Contact us to Claim your Name! >

Naming rights are available for the following spaces:

Naming rights will include signage placed prominently on or above the entrance to a space, at minimum.

  • Many of these spaces have glass doors where signage will be created with vinyl window decals in a single color.
  • Naming rights will also be recognized on maps, internal forms, website descriptions of the Center, and wherever appropriate.
  • We are happy to arrange promotional photo opportunities at all naming rights levels.
  • We will host private or public naming ceremonies/events for up to 100 guests for the opportunities listed with values of $25,000 or more.
In all cases, Brooklyn Community Pride Center’s board of directors will have final approval over the naming of all rooms, spaces, or buildings, including the language surrounding corporate sponsorship of such naming rights.

Plain language terms and conditions.

Our intention with naming rights is to celebrate LGBTQ+ figures of historical or cultural significance with connections to Brooklyn. That said, we are open to discussing many interpretations of who qualifies as historically or culturally significant.

Some examples of figures we consider historically or culturally significant LGBTQ+ people with connections to Brooklyn include: Walt Whitman, Mabel Hampton, Truman Capote, Leonard Bernstein, Ella Wesner, Rusty Mae Moore, Chelsea Goodwin, Sylvia Rivera, Nancy Garden and Renée Vera Pachter Cafiero, and so many more. This is a non-exhaustive list and we invite you to submit your own ideas. In doing so, we encourage you to offer a short biography of the person you wish to honor outlining their impact on the LGBTQ+ community and their connection to Brooklyn. We also encourage you to consider recognizing BIPOC and transgender community members.

An example of what that would look like:

Sylvia Rivera Office
Made possible by the generosity of Michael Arlotto

or 

Mabel Hampton Conference Room

As a general rule, out of respect for the mourning process, we would prefer not to name our spaces after people who have died less than two years ago. We also discourage naming spaces after still-living people.

These naming rights will last 10 years. At the end of the 10-year contract, we will invite sponsors to discuss naming rights in perpetuity.

The protocol for potential corporate sponsorship is to incorporate them into the signage, maps, and other places the names would appear. Examples include:

Rusty Mae Moore & Chelsea Goodwin Booth
Sponsored by Corporate, Inc.

or

Brooklyn Community Pride Center

Our creative team will work with you to incorporate a logo into signage if requested.
