Corporate Sponsorship

Becoming a corporate partner of the Center for Puppetry Arts can provide your business with many benefits – including visibility in the community, perks for your employees, tax benefits, and more! Corporate sponsorship opportunities are flexible and range from $1,500 up to six-and-seven figures. The Center is grateful for its current major sponsors and invites you to join this group of arts supporters.


Corporate Sponsorships

Corporate sponsorships are available in a variety of programmatic areas. While these opportunities are offered at a variety of sponsorship levels and price points so that any business (big or small) can support the Center, most opportunities with significant recognition begin at $5,000. Your business can sponsor one of the Center’s Family Series puppetry performances, putting your brand in front of family audiences and school groups. Or, sponsor a New Directions for Adults and Teens Series performance to reach an older, more adult audience. You can also sponsor a Museum exhibition, an Educational program, the Center’s Film Series, and more. Sponsorship opportunities are customizable based on your business interests and priorities.

Sponsoring String Fling is a fantastic way to get your name and logo in front of thousands of people through inclusion on our save the date, invitation, and gala emails (print deadlines apply). Your name or logo will also appear in front of around 350 gala attendees, including some of Atlanta’s foremost philanthropists, business leaders, and arts lovers.
