Sponsorship Opportunities

The Circle began its Sponsorship Opportunities in March of 2011 with PCL Construction Leaders and Bald Eagle Erectors, a Native-owned and operated business that supports the work of our newspaper.

In its successful, two-year history, our Sponsorship Opportunities have connected businesses and organizations – like yours – to the Minnesota Native American community.

Sponsors of The Circle include Bald Eagle Erectors, PCL Construction Leaders, APi Supply Lifts and Wells Fargo. The most trusted source for news in the American Indian community in Minnesota, The Circle’s print newspaper has a circulation of 10,000 and a readership of 40,000. All 11 reservations in Minnesota receive The Circle at their tribal headquarters. That means tribal leaders who make buying decisions for their tribes have access to, and read, The Circle.

Take a look at how we can help you with your marketing needs and connecting to Minnesota’s large American Indian community.
