MSC's Business Sponsorship Program

  • KN Bee logosThe Minnesota Service Cooperatives Business Sponsorship Program offers a unique opportunity to collaborate and gain valuable exposure while supporting student academic programming opportunities, including Knowledge Bowl and Spelling Bee, which currently impact over 10,000 students across Minnesota. Our programs help students find their passions by providing high-quality enrichment opportunities that are affordable for families and schools. We spark interests, find hidden talents, enhance knowledge, and give students a chance to try new things. With your help, we can do more!

    We've got something in common
    Collectively, the nine regional service cooperatives cover the entire state. For more than 50 years, we’ve worked with local governments, educational institutions, and many other organizations in our communities. MSC supports these entities with programs and services that help fill gaps. We collaborate with organizations to solve common pain points or make good things great; you do too. Together, we achieve more than we ever could alone.
    We can help each other
    Our members are your prospective customers. This includes connections with 500+ public and private education entities, 87 counties, and more than 2,000 cities, townships, and other government agencies. Our programming and communications reach thousands of individual students and families.

    Sponsorship puts you in association with a highly trusted organization that will extend your reach into all corners of the state, providing you with marketing opportunities for various events.
