How to Support ArtsGala

ArtsGala would not be possible without the generosity of local companies, organizations and individuals who see the value in supporting the future of the fine and performing arts. In addition to our community sponsors, ArtsGala is supported by a host committee, made up of community members who volunteer their time and resources throughout the year to help plan the event and think about new and exciting ways to keep ArtsGala fresh from year to year.

ArtsGala Society

In 2019, to celebrate ArtsGala’s 20th anniversary, the ArtsGala Society was established. Members of the ArtsGala Society are providing direct support to student scholarship, which allow our fine and performing arts departments the opportunity to recruit, retain, and support our most talented students you see on the night of ArtsGala.

Thank you to our 2020 ArtsGala Society members!

Sponsors

There are many reasons to consider a sponsorship of ArtsGala. In addition to supporting talented arts students with crucial scholarship support, you show the community that you care about the vivacity of the arts. There are many attractive marketing opportunities available through sponsorship. Additionally, ArtsGala is an attractive venue for entertaining work associates and clients. Because this event is designed to keep people moving through multiple entertainment venues, sponsors can host small groups of clients and escort them throughout the evening, providing a personalized approach to connecting with clientele. 

In its 22-year history, ArtsGala has raised nearly $3 million to fund nearly 800 scholarships for students in the fine and performing arts at Wright State. Sponsorships are critical to this success. Many of our sponsors have partnered with us for years, and we are thankful for their continued suppport through these unprecedented times.
