Become A Sponsor

Your sponsorship helps sustain our mission: To entertain, educate, and enrich through the arts …and connects your business with an engaged, appreciative audience who will value your support of the arts in our community!

SEASON SPONSORSHIP

The Franke Center for the Arts sponsorship offers businesses, organizations and individuals an excellent vehicle for reaching potential customers while supporting the arts.

Season sponsors / advertisers receive recognition:

  • In our program book. Our season program books are read by approximately 6000 patrons per year.
  • Pre-show slideshows. Sponsors are featured on the screen before our mainstage shows.
  • Marquee. We take the time to acknowledge our larger sponsors on our marquee.
  • Social media + our website. We thank each of our sponsors on social media, reaching our 4,000+ social media followers in Calhoun County and beyond.

EVENT SPONSORSHIP

Season sponsors can choose to become the featured sponsor of a specific show during the season. Event sponsors will have their logos placed prominently: on the cover of a show’s program, on posters, on the pre-show slideshow, on the show’s page on TheFranke.org, in eblasts, and on social media. As an added bonus, you’ll receive a complimentary box seat ticket to the show!
