Sponsorships & Donations

The City of University Place provides opportunities for individuals, organizations, and businesses to be personally involved in shaping the special characteristics of our community. Sponsors will receive public recognition of their gifts, unless they wish to remain anonymous.

Ways to Sponsor

You may sponsor in several ways:

  • Anonymous
  • Celebrate a special event
  • Honor a special someone
  • Memorial
  • Name of donor or organization

Contributions to the City for exclusively public purposes are tax deductible for federal income tax purposes. Seek independent advice if you have questions about the deductibility of your gift. Please keep your credit card statement and as substantiation of your gift.

Dress U.P. - Baskets on Bridgeport & Beyond

Dress U.P. in fabulous spring floral! Citizens and businesses provide the necessary sponsorships required to fund the annual purchase and maintenance of over 175 flower-filled hanging baskets throughout the City. We encourage you to join in this springtime tradition by sponsoring one or more of the beautiful springtime baskets in your personal name, your business name or honor a special someone. For more information, view our Baskets on Bridgeport sponsorship form (PDF).

Patrons of Beautification

Patrons are special residents who support beautification improvements in our community that otherwise would not be covered by the City’s limited resources. Sponsored projects include city-wide plantings of more than 75,000 flower bulbs, purchase of decorative trash receptacles and bicycle racks and purchase of lighted Christmas decorations that annually line Bridgeport Way. You too can become a special Patron of Beautification. Find out how (PDF).
