creativity is a journey...

performance is an adventure...

...and education is an art.

where will the arts take you?

Corporate Giving

A letter from our Executive Director:

Dear friend:

My name is Adriane Galea; I am the Executive Director of Center Stage Studios in Allen Park. We operate through two umbrella organizations: Arts Detroit (our storefront located on Ecorse Road), which is a performing arts education studio, and Outvisible Theatre Company, downriver’s first professional union theater.

On October 1st, we received an operational support grant from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA) and the NEA in the amount of $9,500. In order to use the funds, we must receive 1:1 matching funds (no in-kind donations), and our fundraising goal is to match 2:1.

In our drive for matching funds, we are reaching out to the community and business like yours to help with this task through making a donation and becoming a sponsor. Your sponsorship would go toward supporting our community’s youth receiving music and theatre education and our ability to continue offering high quality, non-mainstream theatre at a low cost. It would also help us produce other important artistic programming such as a playwriting festivals (Detroit New Works Festival, a nationally recognized playwriting competition, and the Outvisible New Voices Festival, a youth playwright weekend), scholarship competitions, recitals, and more.

Enclosed, please find sponsorship information and levels. In exchange for your sponsorship, your business logo will be featured on our webpages (which on average have more than 12,000 unique visitors per month) and will be linked back to a website of your choice, plus you will receive recognition in the programs for all of our events for one year. Depending on your level of giving, there are also other promotional opportunities for your business. Regardless, all sponsorships are 100% tax deductible.

Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me by phone or email (listed below) or stop in to see what we do. Visit our websites at www.ArtsDetroit.org or www.OutvisibleTheatre.com

Thank you for considering giving back to the arts. Your support is integral and very much appreciated.

Warm regards,

Adriane Galea
