In an independent study on sponsorship of the arts conducted by Performance Research, the world leader in consumer based sponsorship the following results were found:
56% of respondents said they would almost always or frequently buy a product or support a company sponsoring an arts or cultural event over one that does not.
48% of Americans with an interest in Art and Cultural events indicated that they hold a "Higher" trust in companies that sponsor these events compared to those who do not.
By sponsoring Polaris Arts with a donation, you enable us to continue to provide quality entertainment, and community programs that support our mission. In return, you will be prominently promoted throughout communities as an official sponsor. 86% of our participants say they are more likely to do business with a sponsor than with a non-sponsor.
Participants support Polaris Arts and want to spend their money with businesses that do, as well.
There are two ways you can sponsor an event or program:
• Provide a cash donation to underwrite the expenses of our shows and events.
• Provide in-kind product, such as food, supplies, costumes, sound equipment, or media time, or in-kind service, such as, graphic designers, or photographers. Whatever your business does, we probably have a program or event that could use it.
