Although Monadnock Music has a 52-year history of supporters and local funding, we need to broaden our corporate giving with new partners to bring free intimate village concerts and affordable big shows to the people of this region and visitors from out of town. Many of our loyal corporate sponsors have contributed to our success over multiple decades, but a gift of $1000 won’t get us what it did in 1970. Ticket revenue for Town House Concerts only covers 40% of concert costs, and the donation baskets at our free Village Concerts bring in less than 20% of the cost to produce these events. We need your help to bridge the gap.
Please consider underwriting a concert for your town to benefit your company in the following areas:
Stimulate the local economy: Performance and Art events bring visitors to the region who frequently eat out, shop locally and sometimes need to stay overnight. A 2009 study conducted by Americans for the Arts and entitled Arts And Economic Prosperity III tells us that an average of $14.28 beyond the cost of admission is spent per concert attendee at local businesses when attending a concert.
Attract and sustain quality employees: A thriving cultural and artistic community which offers both night-life events as well as educational opportunities for youth improves the quality of life you can offer your employees.
Present your business as a community supporter within the region: Build your business legacy as a “mover and shaker” and cultural steward in the Monadnock Region.
