We recognize that the arts may not be one of your company’s philanthropic priorities; however, the arts are a priority for very few companies. If the business community didn’t support the arts, then they wouldn’t be here. Because of this, we ask every business in the capital region, to PLAY THEIR PART for the arts, every year.
We’re not asking for a major gift, we simply ask that each local business makes an annual contribution. We feel that the following amounts are manageable for local businesses, yet significant enough to collectively generate the vital support that our arts local organizations need:
1-24 employees = $500 25-99 employees = $1,000
100-249 employees = $2,500 250+ employees = $5,000
As a thank you for PLAYING YOUR PART, you’ll receive invitations to our exclusive ArtsBiz events series. The series consists of four (4) executive level networking events with premium wine, craft beer, cocktails, hors ‘d oeuvres and live entertainment from the Fund’s beneficiaries. These popular events always have a few CEOs in attendance and many prominent members of the local business community. It’s a highly productive and enjoyable way to spend an early evening.
Here’s a listing of the companies that PLAYED THEIR PART for the arts during the Fund’s 2016-17 campaign:
