The Lake Michigan College Mendel Center is fortunate to have the support of businesses and organizations who understand the benefits of arts and cultural programming. Through the financial support of our sponsors, we are able to present world-class entertainment, educational opportunities, and social experiences that help to make southwestern Michigan a great place to live, work, and play.
Sponsorship demonstrates your support of a vibrant community
The Mendel Center is a powerful quality-of-life asset in business attraction and retention in the region. The diverse selection of arts programming and events provides close-to-home activities for families, students, young professionals, and retirees. This atmosphere of cultural enrichment and entertainment is important to your clients, employees, and new recruits.
Sponsorship creates learning opportunities for the youth in our community
The Mendel Center is committed to presenting national touring productions designed especially for children and young people. In fact, over the past quarter century, thousands of young people have experienced the magic of live theater for the very first time right here at The Mendel Center. And the support of sponsors has made those learning and social opportunities possible.
Sponsorship provides your business with valuable recognition in the marketplace
More than 50,000 people attend events each year at The Mendel Center, and 80% of them live and work right here in southwestern Michigan. As a sponsor, your company or organization will be recognized all season long in the playbill made available to patrons at every Mainstage performance, right here on our website, on lobby and theatre screens during each performance, in email communications, and much more.
Each season sponsorship level has its own set of benefits, including a complimentary playbill ad, complimentary premium seating, VIP experiences, and other special access and recognition.
Performance sponsorship packages for individuals and families are available. Benefits include complimentary premium seating, artist meet & greet opportunities, and other special recognition.
