Boreal Community Media

Experience the benefits other Cook County Businesses enjoy by becoming a Boreal sponsor

Welcome to Boreal Community Media.

Dear Business Owner,
Boreal Community Media is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation designed to provide local news, information about community activities and connections to residents and visitors of Cook County and the Arrowhead Region of Northern Minnesota through our website:  On our website we also offer a business directory, free classified advertising and a regional events calendar to keep our communities connected and engaged.

We serve Grand Marais, Gunflint Trail, Hovland, Grand Portage, Lutsen, Sawbill Trail, Schroeder, Tofte and the greater Arrowhead region.

Many Cook County businesses have enjoyed the business benefits of becoming a Boreal sponsor.  On average, more than 70,000 people visit each month to stay up to date on local and regional news, community events, free classified advertising and messages from area businesses.  

We will feature your business message in a banner advertisement you provide or we can create one customized for your business.  We will run your banner schedule on the dates you desire and report the results in terms of total impressions and the number of click-thrus to your website or social media page at the conclusion of your sponsor campaign schedule.

Our sponsors in turn can choose a variety of methods ranging from business listings to advertising sponsor messages to communicate with their audiences.  We have a number of different sponsorship packages to fit the needs of any business or organization.  For sponsorship information or to learn about private donations, and what they can accomplish, contact [email protected].

As a non-profit organization, we depend on sponsorship support from local businesses and organizations, public and private grants, and private donations.  All financial underwriting to Boreal Community Media is tax-deductible.  

You can see all of the sponsorship options in the attached PDF of our most recent sponsorship brochure.
