Financially underwrite a portion of the costs of a specific concert. Companies may select a concert of their choice during the season as the exclusive corporate sponsor. Recognition and hospitality will revolve around this event. Concert options include programs in the: Masterworks, Great Escapes, Chamber Soirees, Outdoor Pops and Sarasota Music Festival.
Each year, the Sarasota Orchestra hosts a variety of benefit events, as well as special fundraisers including our annual fundraising dinner event and our annual Brunch to raise funds for our education programs. Participation as an event sponsor will provide your company with a unique array of networking opportunities in addition to valuable recognition and branding.
By underwriting the cost of a concert through media trade advertising, you will become an exclusive sponsor. Your company will receive exclusivity, recognition in the Orchestra's season brochure, Program Book ads, complimentary tickets and recognition at the event. Media sponsors help by contributing ad space and airtime to advertise the Orchestra concerts and events.
Each year, earned revenues cover less than half of our $10-million operating costs. Gifts from generous individuals, corporations and foundations make up the balance. It is a delicate duet that plays on in the form of magnificent performances, brilliant guest artists and a rich variety of musical, education and community-outreach programs - with the Sarasota Music Festival as the crescendo each year.
Your online donation immediately supports our annual operations and ensures the musical tradition will not be silenced.
