Three times a year, we collect feature articles, updates, and commentary from FOA and park leadership—together with gorgeous photographs of the park in all seasons—and share them with our members, volunteers, and local residents. Each issue is designed to inform, inspire, and entertain.
But above all, each issue of the Journal reminds our members of their love for Acadia, and works to deepen the close relationship so many have with the park.
A remarkable 93 percent of our members read the Friends of Acadia Journal. Sponsorship offers the best kind of exposure for your organization, demonstrating your commitment to Acadia National Park to the thousands of individuals and families who live here or visit regularly, and who love the park. And as a valuable community partner, you help Friends of Acadia grant more than a million dollars every year to the park and our surrounding communities.

Other sponsorship opportunities: Business Sponsorships
Because of Friends of Acadia’s IRS classification, we are obligated to observe certain restrictions in ad content. Sponsorship ads may include:
- The sponsor’s name, logo, or products
- Slogans/tag lines that are an established part of the sponsor’s identity (“G.E…We bring good things to life.”) or that do not contain qualitative or comparative descriptions of the sponsor’s products, services, facilities or company
- A list of the sponsor’s locations, telephone numbers, or Internet address
- Value-neutral descriptions, including displays or visual depictions, of the sponsor’s products or services
Not allowed are qualitative or comparative language (“gorgeous,” “the best,” “#1”), price information, or indications of savings or value (“10% off”).
This is a relatively new restriction for all Friends of Acadia publications, and we do our best to apply the rules correctly and fairly. If you have questions about the wording of your ad, please contact Sharon Broom at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for understanding!
