Run for the ArtsSponsorship Opportunities

The Cultural Center of Cape Cod hosts several annual events that give sponsors the chance to support our work and gain excellent exposure through this web site, our newsletters, press releases, signage, and other promotional materials.

Because the Cultural Center is a 501(C)3 non profit organization, donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.

Sponsorships opportunities include, but are not limited to the following:


The Bass River Garden Stroll
A June tour of nine gorgeous gardens, each with a knowledgeable gardener and a plein air painter on the premises.

Run / Walk for the Arts
An annual 5K run and walk held in June in beautiful, historic Bass River.

Celebration of the Arts
Named the “premiere” event of its type by participants, this 2-day August festival showcases the work of many fine artists and artisans.

Treasures of Yarmouth Scavenger Hunt
The first Scavenger Hunt will be held on October 2, 2011 but we plan to make this an annual event that eventually includes all of the Cape’s towns. In 2011, the event will begin and end at the Cultural Center but lead participants to the gems of Yarmouth—cultural, historical, natural, and commercial. Supported in part by a grant from the Yarmouth Tourism Revenue Preservation Fund, this event seeks a major sponsor interested in an excellent opportunity for very positive exposure both on- and off-Cape.

Major Art Exhibits
Every year, the Cultural Center has been chosen as the venue for a regional exhibit by a national arts organization. This honor is, however, costly, since the organizations pay no rent and often expect venues to incur considerable expense.

Events by School Children and Nonprofits
The Cultural Center offers free space for any school-related performance or exhibit. It also rents its facility as a greatly reduced cost to a number of nonprofits for their programs and special events. Sponsors receive recognition year round.


Rise and Shine
Now in its fourth year (though originally called the All Write program), the Rise and Shine Program offers workshops in the arts to youth at risk followed by opportunities to celebrate their work through exhibits, readings, and performances at the Cultural Center. Hundreds of students from all over the Cape have taken part in this program, one of the Center’s finest contributions to the region.

The Support for Emerging Artists Series
Many local emerging artists (writers, musicians, actors, dancers, and other performing artists) —deserve both a venue and an audience but have not yet established a following. It has therefore been the Cultural Center’s practice to support these artists by donating performance space, staff support, equipment, and various materials. Sponsorship of this program will help the Cultural Center to, in turn, help these promising artists.

The PR Kits for Artists Program
This program provides professional high resolution digital photographs and written materials for emerging visual or performing artists. The goals of the program are to help emerging artists promote themselves, increase visibility, secure engagements, build confidence, and encourage professionalism.

The Cultural Center hosts classes and workshops for many ages and interests and is always eager to include those without the means to pay tuition.

Other Ways to Support Us
Our Annual Fund and membership dues provide unrestricted funding that is vital to our financial health and our capacity to serve. In-kind donations, especially of essential services, are also very important. To learn more about how to donate to or otherwise support the Cultural Center, please contact our Executive Director, Robert Nash (, or our Associate Director, Lauren Wolk (
