Sponsorship

The Deerfield Dirt Road Randonnee (D2R2) is our biggest fundraising event of the year. Your donation will help conserve more of our family farms and the rural character of this region that we love.

D2R2, the original gravel ride, now in its 19th year, attracts riders from all over the country and the world. We annually host around 1,500 riders from as many as 26 states and 5 countries who ride throughout western MA and southern Vermont.

We’d like to help you spread the word about your business through a D2R2 sponsorship.

Sponsorships are an affordable and effective way to reach a targeted audience who make it a priority to eat, lodge and shop locally and support local businesses.

Please take a look at our sponsorship opportunities to see how you might benefit from a partnership with FLT. A sponsorship is not only good for your business; it helps support an organization working tirelessly to protect the vistas we cherish, the farms that sustain us and the woods and waterways vital to the environmental health of our region.

Franklin Land Trust has been in business 36 years and has protected over 35,000 acres in our communities. We invite you to partner with us we move toward the next milestone.

To advertise, please contact Mary Lynn Sabourin 413-625-9151 x103 before June 1, 2023
