We strive to enrich local communities by connecting artists directly with their audiences. In order to continue bringing arts programming to under-served populations we must raise over $200,000 each year, beyond the funds received from government sources. With your help we can reach that goal.

To view the Artivate supporters, please visit the Grantors, Donors and Sponsors page.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Artivate invites individuals, corporations and small businesses to sponsor Artivate annually, with year-round benefits and opportunities, and/or to sponsor our fall fundraising event, Celebrate Artivate!  Your support allows us to continue providing access and support to the highly-skilled teaching artists associated with Artivate and allocating funding for programming to schools unable pay for programming on their own (Financial Support from Artivate). To see sponsorship levels and benefits, view or download our sponsorship package here.

You can support the arts in communities all around DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia by sponsoring Artivate today!
