Corporate Giving

Artspace offers businesses the opportunity to reach potential customers and promote and expand their businesses while simultaneously supporting the arts in our community. Through the corporate sponsorship program, Artspace provides business owners with an effective way to communicate their marketing message and their commitment to the arts to thousands of potential customers in the Triangle.

As you consider your support for Artspace, please keep in mind that these dollars are not a contribution but rather an investment. The arts are a powerful economic engine, driving businesses, creating jobs and prompting prospective employees to relocate to our area, and drawing cultural tourists to spend their vacations with us. Raleigh and Wake County are at the top of countless “Best Places to Live” lists because of the cultural vitality of the area. The arts and Artspace play a significant role in this vitality.

An Artspace sponsorship is an excellent marketing opportunity for businesses as Artspace can provide exposure for your brand to a wide audience. Depending on the level of sponsorship, contributors are listed on the donor board, the Artspace web site, and in the bi-monthly newsletter. We see approximately 100,000 visitors per year, have over 132,000 unique web site visitors annually, and print 26,000 newsletters each year.

Corporate philanthropy is the right thing to do. It’s an investment in your community. Investment in Artspace shows your appreciation for and belief in the human spirit and your commitment to improving our quality of life – your employees quality of life, your clients quality of life, your community’s quality of life.

Funding can support general operating budget, educational fund, or a specific program.
