Become a Grand Sponsor
Over the last couple of years, numerous Friends’ patrons have indicated it would be easier for them to write one check and sponsor everything. Today, I’m pleased to offer the opportunity for you to purchase a Grande Sponsorship for the 2019-2020 season.
A Grande Sponsorship is a minimum of $5,000 and does not include tickets to any programs or concerts or any other goods or services, making the sponsorship fully tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. You can even combine your Grande Sponsorship with your annual charitable contribution so that only one check needs to be made to Friends each year.
- Receive a charitable gift receipt for the full amount of your Grande Sponsorship and acknowledgement in programs and printed reports;
- Have an insider opportunity via email to buy 2 tickets at the regular price to any of our programs* before they go on sale (additional tickets can be purchased if available);
- Enjoy sponsor seating in the auditorium for all included programs;
- Be invited to meet & greet opportunities with authors, presenters, and performers for which you have purchased tickets.
Grande Sponsorship privileges may be applied to the following programs: 3-day American Revolution symposium; Matt LaVore mystery & magic show, Kruger Brothers concert, and Brentano Quartet concert; 4-lecture American Presidents series; 3-lecture Great Adventures series; 4-lecture History & Heritage series; Hilary Swain lecture; Martin Walker lecture; and 2-day Migration symposium.
The advantage of becoming a Grande Sponsor is that you can easily use your donor advised fund or family foundation without the hassle of separating ticket prices from sponsorships. You won’t have all those tax receipts to keep track of – you will receive just one letter.
Most important to Friends, however, is that by becoming a Grande Sponsor you are helping to reach our goal of providing outstanding cultural and educational programs for Boca Grande. We couldn’t do it without your continued support.
Please consider becoming a Grande Sponsor today.
