Special Event Sponsorships
We’re always on the lookout for cash sponsorship and in-kind donations for special fundraising events like Next Step, our signature fundraiser that regularly draws enthusiastic crowds in the hundreds, along with many other annual and one-time special events. In addition to serving as yet another stream of operating revenue, these events expand our audience and membership base, involve artists in innovative ways, and are a lot of fun-and we’re eager to include you in that process, too.
