OUTREACH SPONSORSHIPS are one of many ways that helps the Santa Barbara Bowl invest in our future audiences and future artists. These sponsorships give us an opportunity to engage with your organization through mutually-beneficial support. We are able to provide funding towards your community event or program and in return, we can help encourage support of community arts events through the Bowl brand. To qualify for a sponsorship, your event must feature or benefit youth performing arts within Santa Barbara County. While we support all performing arts, special emphasis is placed on programs incorporating music.
Examples of sponsorships we love: Youth stage sponsorships for public events, performing arts workshops, scholarship opportunities, high school musical productions, the Santa Barbara Bowl Performing Arts Teacher of the Year and more. Some broad examples of sponsorship levels might include the following:
$250 - 1/4 page advertisement in event program or logo on website and social media.
$1000 - full page advertisement in event program, banner placement, etc.
$2500 - prominent banner display, full page advertisement, radio mention, event tickets, etc.
$7500 - joint press release highlighting partnership, VIP tickets to event, prominent logo placement, naming rights, etc.
Examples of requests that do not qualify: Fundraising events that do not benefit youth performing arts, events that have already taken place in the past, events that would not provide recognition to the Bowl's Outreach program, requests that would be better aligned with our Instrument Fund or Full Grant Application.
Sponsorship requests typically take about two weeks to review. If your request has been approved, staff will work with your organization to ensure all logos, ads, marketing opportunities, etc. are agreed and delivered upon. Please be sure to give us the details about your awesome upcoming event so that we can help cross-promote!
