Get Results with Marine Corps Sponsorship & Advertising

Community Helping Community

As we all work to get Hawaii’s tourism industry reconnected, our reinforcements might just be wearing uniforms. The defense economy is the second largest sector of Hawaii’s economy, delivering an estimated $7.2 Billion or 8% of the State’s Gross Domestic Product (Hawaii Defense Economy)

Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS) may be able to help connect you with that audience.

MCCS provides a comprehensive set of programs that support and enhance the operational readiness, war fighting capabilities, and life quality of Marines, their families, retirees and civilians. Our programming includes shopping, fitness, recreation, dining, family services, education, and so much more.

Taking Care of our Marines, Sailors and their families has always been a community effort. Now, more than ever, we understand that taking care of each other is a two-way relationship. Partnering with MCCS not only shows support for your military audience, but can deliver immediate results to your business or organization by sharing your message and affording exposure to over 18,000 Marines, Sailors, family members and civilians aboard Marine Corps Base Hawaii.

As a business, we have also been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 global pandemic, and appreciate how every dollar counts. In an effort to support our local businesses, we have initiated the “Community Helping Community” initiative; providing deeply discounted advertising and sponsorship opportunities to businesses seeking to connect with the military audience, meanwhile maximizing their budgets.

The attached Community Helping Community rate sheet was created for new community partners, and offers simple, effective and quick digital advertising solutions for immediate exposure of your message. I invite you to reach out at any time to explore how our community can help you. See this Community Helping Community rate sheet for pricing.
