Sponsorships and Special Projects

Given that a core component of ArtsFund’s mission involves raising and responsibly allocating general operating dollars, our first choice in any conversation with a new or returning donor is to encourage a gift to our current campaign. That being said, we understand that some companies have only marketing dollars available with which they must sponsor events, and some foundations have their own grant making system and do not give to collaborative funding organizations. We also know that every dollar we can find to defray our own operating expenses, especially those associated with events, is a dollar we can allocate. Therefore, we work to find companies and individuals to underwrite the expenses of our events, services and programs such as our Board Leadership Training program, and special projects such as the Social Impact of the Arts Study and our Economic Impact Studies.
