SPONSORSHIP

The MCAC serves our community by trying to offer as many low-cost admission events as possible. To do that, we need sponsors to help pay for costs associated with events like our monthly performance series for kids and our galleries, which are always free and open to the public. Sponsoring an event at the MAC shows a deep commitment to the vitality of our community, and is a way to “give back.”

For businesses, an association with the MCAC is a way to reach new customers, and shows community members that you care about what they care about. Celebrating the arts is a way to build a powerful presence and engage with multiple customers quickly and effectively. According to Americans for the Arts, businesses agree that the arts increase name recognition (79 percent) and offer networking opportunities to develop new business (74 percent).

Scholarships for foster kids: Through a partnership with CASA Merced, we offer scholarships to art classes at the MAC to kids in the foster system or involved in the court system to classes. (Amounts vary.)

Music at the MAC: A $500 sponsorship will help us present artists of all genres from folk and jazz to blues and indie rock. These all-ages shows attract a wide variety of audiences including families, seniors, and UC students.

We also partner with the Merced Symphony Orchestra to offer previews, master classes, and “behind the baton” talks in conjunction with their performances.

Galleries: The MAC is the Valley’s premier venue for the visual arts in all media. A $1500 sponsorship for one of our gallery shows helps us bring in new and emerging artists, feature local artists, and present nationally recognized artists from all over the State and country.

Please contact Colton Dennis if you would like for information about sponsoring an event.
