Patronage & Sponsorships

Patrons provide invaluable sustenance to the organization by allowing us to sustain and expand our current level of programming, such as bringing in more well-known acts, and providing outreach at area schools through special mini-concerts or clinics that many of our performers offer. Most importantly, patrons help us keep costs down for members, making this wonderful concert-going opportunity available for the widest possible number of individuals throughout the area.  As CLACA is a 501(c)(3) organization, patron donations are considered tax-deductible.

In addition to the patron benefits outlined at right, the first concert of the season includes a special “patron night,” which includes a recognition of patrons during the concert, and an invitation to the afterglow with the performers and CLACA board members. Throughout the season, patrons at all levels are recognized at each concert, and are listed here on the website.

Patrons at the Orchestra level ($1,000 and over) have the opportunity to be recognized as the sponsor of one of our shows.  Sponsors will be mentioned in the pre-concert publicity (e.g., newspapers, posters, website, etc.), and acknowledged in the program as well as during the introduction of the show.  Sponsors will also have the opportunity to put a display in the lobby area during their sponsored show, which would be seen by concertgoers before and after the show, as well as during intermission.  For information about becoming a patron or sponsor, call (641) 529-1964, or make a donation online
