  • Potential tax advantages for funds contributed

Sponsor the entire season or individual areas and support the arts in your community while promoting your business! Some options include:

  • Guest Artist Sponsor
  • Link Up Education Sponsor – YOU could be the missing “link!”
    • According to the National Endowment for the Arts, the factor most closely related to adults attending live arts performances is childhood participation in the arts, outranking even education and income. Additionally, according to a 2015 study done by the Americans for the Arts, creativity and the ability to think creatively, was ranked as "...one of the top three personality traits most important to career success, according to U.S. employers." In this same study, 97% of school superintendents surveyed agreed that music assists in developing creativity, yet only 17% of schools require music courses to graduate.”
