The Need For Corporate Support

Philanthropy with a Purpose

Support from corporate contributors helps to unify and enrich our communities, bringing together performers and audiences in celebration of the human spirit.

Teachers and parents have long known the arts can transform children's lives. Numerous studies prove students who receive instruction in the arts as part of their school curriculum are more disciplined, more creative, and more involved in the learning process. As school budgets are tightened and programs are cut, it is crucial to take a more proactive role in preserving arts education.

With more than 80% of the Center's operating income received from earned and contributed income, the need for corporate support is great.

The Corporate Fund

The Corporate Fund provides unrestricted support for artistic and educational programming around the country, with company representatives and employees enjoying exclusive access and benefits.


Sponsorships offer exceptional promotional and hospitality opportunities at the Kennedy Center, helping companies accomplish key business objectives through exclusive rights and benefits.
