Program Sponsor

Program Sponsor

Chautauqua is privileged to have the support of community partners who make possible maintaining the standard of excellence for programming which is the hallmark of the Chautauqua experience. Without the philanthropic assistance provided by corporate sponsorships, Chautauqua would be unable to present the artistic and cultural programming that so enriches the quality of life in this region.

Every effort is made to tailor sponsorships so they meet the specific desires of community partners. By offering diverse forms of promotion—which vary according to the desired level of visibility and a partner’s general needs or expectations—there is an intrinsic flexibility with sponsorship opportunities. Examples include sponsoring a lecture (including the highly visible 10:45 am lectures featuring renowned speakers), a symphony performance, a weekly lecture series, or an Amphitheater special event. Friday evening Amphitheater Specials, alone, have included often sold-out performances by LeAnn Rimes, Michael Bolton, The Beach Boys, Randy Travis, Ray Charles, Mark Russell, and other top entertainers.

Reserved seating is provided for community partners, their clients, and/or employees plus a limited number of free and/or reduced price tickets, and the group receives a special escort to the Amphitheater prior to the event. Some sponsors also elect to host a private reception at the Athenaeum Hotel before the performance.

For additional benefits, please call Tina Downey at (716) 357-6406. Sponsorships are available for a minimum of $5,000 and are credited as unrestricted support of the annual Chautauqua Fund.
