Partnerships between the Kalamazoo Civic Theatre and local corporations, businesses, and organizations have many benefits for everyone involved. With the generous support of our Production Sponsors, Corporate Partners, and Event Sponsors, we are able to continue providing theatre of the highest quality and offering hands-on, lifelong learning opportunities. In turn, Sponsors and Partners receive recognition as companies that are dedicated to maintaining a vibrant cultural community and making a difference in the areas where they do business. We appreciate your corporation's interest in financially supporting the Civic and have several options available for you:
Production sponsors play a huge role in not only supporting productions, but also introducing employees, colleagues, and clients to our theatre. The benefits of production sponsorship are far-reaching and include a private performance of the production that you are sponsoring and extensive marketing consideration. Imagine having the entire theatre to yourself to entertain and thank your clients, customers, or employees!
We begin connecting sponsors to productions shortly after our new season is announced in late winter/early spring; however, we are able to bring on new sponsors anytime during the season. Sponsorship rates vary based on title and venue. A complete list of sponsorship benefits can be found here. For more information, please contact our Development Director.

Fundraising Event Sponsorship
The Civic has two dynamic fundraising events that are designed to provide the community with fun-filled opportunities to support our theatre. Each fundraiser offers sponsorship opportunities that provide high visibility and recognition.
Tim's Wild Ride - A bicycle tour with 13, 31, 62, and 100 mile routes that is held in June.
Annual Wine Tasting - A themed wine and beer tasting held in the Civic Auditorium in October.
For more information on either event, including current sponsorship levels, visit our Fundraising Events page.
Annual Gifts/General Donations
Annual Gifts provide essential operating support for the Civic and can be given as one-time gifts or recurring gifts. Recurring gifts can be paid in pre-determined increments, such as monthly or quarterly, via our online donation system. Unrestricted gifts provide the greatest flexibility for the Civic; however, please let us know if you wish to make a donation to a specific purpose, production, or program.
