Become a Business Sponsor

Business sponsors demonstrate that they care about arts education in our community and want to share the power of the arts with those who otherwise would have little to no access. Your support enables children, teens, adults and seniors to receive scholarships to participate in a wide range of visual and performing arts at the Center for Community Arts.

As a sponsor, your business’s name/logo will be featured on Community Arts Foundation’s website, e-newsletters, social media outlets and sponsor banners located throughout the community, and in the City of Walnut Creek Arts & Rec Catalog, which is mailed to 45,000 households across the city and county. Additionally, your business will receive an invitation to a VIP Sponsor Recognition Event that occurs each Spring.

We provide several sponsorship levels enabling businesses of all sizes to participate. Contact us now to learn more!
