The Ark is proud to work with the many local businesses and corporations that help make our programming possible through their support.
Based on input from the local business community, we’ve developed three sponsorship opportunities for businesses and corporations interested in supporting The Ark:
Ann Arbor Folk Festival Sponsorship
If you’re looking for a high degree of visibility and recognition, sponsorship of the Ann Arbor Folk Festival puts your business in front of 6,000 people in Hill Auditorium. The Ark’s annual signature event takes place the last Friday and Saturday of January and is considered one of Michigan’s premiere music events. Sponsorships range from $1,000 - $25,000. All levels include recognition from the stage and in the program, tickets to the event and backstage passes during intermission. Levels $2,500 and above also include recognition in print promotion, as well as other select benefits.

Corporate Friend Program
If you’re interested in entertaining clients or rewarding employees with tickets to Ark performances, our Corporate Friend Program is the way to go. An annual contribution at one of three levels--$500, $1,000 or $2,000-- provides your business with tickets to four or more designated Ark shows per month for a year.

If you’d like access to an Ark audience during a show, Stage Sponsorship is the way to go. Stage Sponsorship is $300 per show; a commitment to four shows is $1,000. Stage Sponsorship provides you with recognition from the stage, an opportunity to briefly address the audience at the start of the show, and a table in The Ark lobby, where you can distribute items and/or literature during the show.

The Ark extends sincere thanks to all the businesses and corporations who support us throughout the year and make a difference to The Ark.
