We simply could not exist without the support of the individuals and businesses who donate money or services, volunteer their time, and attend our events. Although the economic climate is shaky, so many have stepped forward to lend a hand to our organization so that we may continue the work of enriching the community though the arts.
Did you know? The arts create leisure, education and social opportunities for individuals and families as well as provide creative outlets for artistic skills. Participation in the arts is also linked to higher scholastic achievement in children, greater happiness in adults, and improved physical and emotional health for all arts participants. Help us develop and sustain our vibrant arts community by becoming a member today. As a member, you’ll receive our exclusive quarterly newsletter Accolades, advance notice of events and ticket sales and more.
Did you know? The non-profit arts generate both direct and indirect funding for communities including revenue to artists and organizations as well as “collateral spending” on dining, shopping, hotel, and parking related to arts attendance. Additionally, a vibrant, culturally active community encourages new industry, a young workforce, and cultural tourists vital to the social and economic fabric of the region. Join the Springfield Area Arts Council as a corporate partner and start a relationship that will increase exposure for your business, assist in the development of the arts and culture in Sangamon and Menard counties, and strengthen the social fabric of our region.
