Sponsorship – Good for the Community . . . Good for Business

Yearly sponsorship is critical to the Flynn’s programming and community outreach. Sponsorship support helps us to provide quality and affordable performances. In addition, we depend on our sponsors and grantors to provide additional funds for artistic development and education programs. As an individual or a business, you can sponsor a Student Matinee, a MainStage or a FlynnSpace performance, or a Benefit Event. Student Matinee and FlynnSpace performance sponsorships begin at $1,500. Co-sponsorships of MainStage performances begin at $2,500 and go up to $7,500 depending on the performance. Exclusive sponsorships generally start at $3,000 and may go up to $15,000 depending on the performance. For more information, contact Nancy Abbott-Hourigan at 802-652-4505 or
