The LII is launching a corporate sponsorship program. We plan to replace all advertising on the site with simple notices recognizing our sponsors. We estimate that each notice will be seen by more than 165,000 people each year. More details about the mechanics are here.
Why should you sponsor us?
- You want to associate your company or firm with free and open access to law.
- You want to associate your company or firm with an objective source of information about government and the rules under which it operates.
- You want to associate yourself with the oldest and best-known developers of Internet legal technology in the world — the people who built the first legal Web site, and the first Web browser for Windows, and have led experimentation in legal information technology ever since.
You’ll also help remove advertising from the site. The goal is to completely replace the ads with a single notice on each page that recognizes one of our sponsors. Each sponsor’s notice will be shown on a percentage of the entire run of pages within a particular LII collection. At a minimum, 165,000 people will see your organization as the sole sponsor of whatever page they are viewing (the exact workings are explained here)
How will this help you? I suppose that as a long-time dweller in America’s Most Enlightened City I should talk about karma — and believe me, you can get some of the good kind, and a lot of personal satisfaction, by helping us and the 33 million people who depend on us
But there are more practical reasons as well. You’ll make yourself known to an audience that is educated, engaged, and aware. The people who visit the LII site are overwhelmingly interested in objectivity and accuracy. They’re public-spirited. They come from all parts of the political and cultural spectrum. They all have some interest in law or the legal system.
And they’re amazingly diverse — our individual supporters include a former President of the World Bank and the head buyer for a food bank in Michigan, a former Solicitor General of the United States and the owner of a business that makes custom machine parts in Rochester, NY, a journalist who’s won the Pulitzer once and been a finalist three times, and the lawyer for the public transport system in Philadelphia. Our corporate sponsors include Fastcase, Justia, and Morrison and Foerster.
Sponsoring us will make you feel good about you, and make them feel good about you. It shows that you want to help us help others to find and understand the law using a free and objective source. If that sounds good to you, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call our Fundraising Director, Peter Kopp, at 607-255-9634.
