|Dear Edge Supporters: |
We recently unveiled components of our plan to build upon our successes at The Edge Theater and establish our company as a premier theater in Colorado with continued growth through 2020. One of the major aspects of our growth plan is to build a stronger infrastructure with an Associate Artistic Director and Resident Stage Manager.
The purpose of this letter, however, is to elaborate on another significant objective. We launched our spring fundraising program with a goal to raise $50,000 over the next three months. Our Edge Sponsorship Program was rolled out and we’re excited to begin adding individual and corporate sponsors to our list of valued contributors. We are currently seeking sponsors for these initiatives in the remaining 2016 season:
Second Half Season Sponsorship $25,000 exclusive
Sponsor the entire second half of our sixth season….the best one yet. With a theme like BIG SHOWS / BOLD MOVES, we can’t go wrong!
Media Sponsorship $10,000
We are seeking a corporate partner or individual who will get production credit on our advertising and video creation for the remainder of the year. This sophisticated approach will benefit us by expanding audience and will benefit our partner as our media is seen by thousands on social media and other advertising sources.
$10,000 for exclusive show sponsoring rightsAs we produce our first musical, the expense for doing so can be overwhelming. The set for this musical requires us to convert the theater into a bar/nightclub and sponsors will have naming rights to the actual bar! Like in Cheers, everyone will know your name!
In addition to show sponsoring rights, we are seeking sponsors for many of the components of this show.
- Non-exclusive show sponsoring rights - $1,000 - $4,999
- Actor / Talent Rights (Equity Contracts) - $3,000 for one, $12,000 for the entire cast
- Five Piece Band - $6,500
$5,000-$10,000 for exclusive show sponsoring rights/$1,000-$4,999 non-exclusive
This new version of the story of The Queen of France will have audience members on the edge of their seats! Professional exclusive rights were required to gain the ability to produce this show!
A View From the Bridge
$5,000-$10,000 for exclusive show sponsoring rights/$1,000-$4,999 for non-exclusive
We end our 2016 season with a favorite of the Executive/Artistic Director! This Arthur Miller classic has been revived on Broadway every four years….FOR GOOD REASON! It’s a terrific play about family, immigration, and unrequited desires!
Please consider joining us as an Edge Sponsor for the 2016 season. For individuals who don’t have the budget to participate in the sponsorship, all contributions toward our objective will be greatly appreciated.
And remember, there are many ways to give: 1.) Contribute financially 2.) Refer individuals or corporations that might be interested 3.) Get involved! We’re still seeking two board members (one with a law background) and can always use volunteers for our committees that will execute on our growth plan. Just keep coming to the shows and living life on The Edge!
- Directors Club - $250+
- Friends of The Edge - $50-$249
Materials on the sponsorship benefits are available on line and at The Edge. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 720-233-1270 or via email at email@example.com
