Very Important Partner (VIP) Sponsor
VIP Sponsors make a significant donation to the Lied Center because they recognize the importance of the performing arts to our community. VIP Sponsors not only have the satisfaction of supporting the arts, they enjoy a value of more than $40,000 in marketing opportunities.
Did You Know?
Supporting the arts can help with employee retention and satisfaction.
Employees whose companies support social issues are 40% more likely to say they are proud of their company's values, and nearly 25% are more likely to be loyal to their employers than those whose companies do not.
Becoming a VIP Sponsor can help your business grow.
A study by Cone, L.L.C. indicated that 87% of Americans surveyed said they would switch from one brand to another, price and quality being about equal, if the other brand is associated with a good cause.

VIP Sponsors Enrich Our Community
VIP Sponsors play an important role in civic engagement. Supporting the arts leads to:
- • A richer community
"There is no better indicator of the spiritual health of our city, its neighborhoods, and the larger region than the state of the arts. Through their diversity of feeling, their variety of form, their multiplicity of inspiration, the arts make our culture richer and more reflective." — Jonathan Fanton, president of the MacArthur Foundation
- • A positive school environment
Studies show that students who experience the arts enjoy more success in reading, language, mathematics, thinking skills, social skills and are more motivated to learn.
- • Economic growth
Studies show that access to the arts can aid communities in recruiting new residents and can bring revenue to the community.
