    The big news this week is that we are now recruiting sponsors of our various newsletters and media channels. More on this below. But if you are a decision-maker at an organization, I hope you will consider becoming a ForwardKY sponsor.
    More to come in the next few weeks. And as always, thanks for being a member of Forward Kentucky!



You can now become a Forward Kentucky sponsor!

That’s right – you can now get your organization’s message in front of a key demographic: citizens who are actively engaged in making a difference in our state.

Our readers and viewers are some of the most influential leaders and activists in Kentucky. Having them know your organization’s name, and purpose, and results, can make a big difference in your outreach and in your work.

As we start out with signing up sponsors, we are keeping the cost low. (Like, real low!) So, you can purchase multiple sponsor slots without breaking the bank.

There are slots for text messages, included in a block within a newsletter. There are pre-roll and mid-roll slots for our podcasts, either recorded by you or by one of our staff. And, there are pre-roll and mid-roll slots in our videos, where you can provide the video or we can create it for you.

Want to learn more? Want to give it a try? Just go to the sponsor page and sign up! Once you do, we’ll be in touch about your message, the dates you want, and the slots you purchased. It couldn’t be easier!
