Event Sponsorships

Take advantage of a unique opportunity to market your business. Darlington seeks corporate and community business partners to aid us in the presentation of our performance events.  Sponsors will receive maximum recognition in all publicity including press releases, newsletters, programs, mailed invitations/postcards, cable, and web site inclusion.  All sponsors are listed in our catalog that is mailed to 4,000 households and are highlighted in the programs for our events.  A table may be set up in the lobby by our sponsors and/or signage in the lobby the day of the event. Our sponsors will also receive free tickets to the events they sponsor.

Sponsorships are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.  Please consult your tax adviser.  Our Federal Tax ID number is 23-2081984.

To discuss a sponsorship opportunity catered to your needs, please contact Eric Carter-Thompson, Executive Director, by email at eric@darlingtonarts.org.
