Sponsorship Opportunities

Support the Wisconsin Policy Forum by sponsoring an event, a specific research project or a graduate summer intern!


Viewpoint Luncheons

Our popular Viewpoint Luncheons promote in-depth policy discussions and feature knowledgeable speakers and panelists covering a variety of timely topics. The Forum hosts 3-4 Viewpoint Luncheons in Milwaukee and Madison. These events are typically attended by 150-200 civic, government, and business leaders.
Amount: $1-2,000 range, depending on venue and topic

Salute to Local Government

The annual Salute to Local Government is one of the few events in our state that highlights the value of public sector performance and the benefits that public sector innovation and excellence bring to taxpayers and our community as a whole. This event reflects the Forum's strong belief that good government is worth celebrating, and that there are many examples of ingenuity and outstanding performance in local governments and school districts that need to be recognized. More than 400 civic, government, and business leaders attend this event.
Amount: $3,700

Policy in a Pub

The Forum hosts Policy in a Pub events where attendees can hear about latest research, enjoy great policy discussion, and connect with other Forum members in a casual atmosphere. Between 100-125 people typically attend these events, which are held 2-3 times per year in Milwaukee and Madison.
Amount: $500-1,000, depending on location

Other Opportunities

Brown Bag Lunches

One of the major benefits of Forum membership is access to our expert team of researchers. Brown Bag Lunches are hosted by a company or organization that is interested a presentation about our research or timely policy issues. We'll work with you to set the date and topic; you invite colleagues to attend!


Support specific research projects or fact "books." Note: we don't accept sponsorships where conflicts of interest exist or may be perceived.
Amount: varies

Graduate Internships

Support a graduate intern who will work on various research projects during the summer months. The Forum hires 1-2 interns in the summer, and occasionally works with interns during the academic year. Interns are located in Milwaukee and/or Madison offices.
Amount: $1-4,000/summer
