Business Sponsorship

Supporting the arts is good for business

Business Sponsor Level 1 ($250)

Recommended for businesses that want to promote their business through the arts. This level helps promote your brand and values, keeps you up to date with the art events, and offers opportunities to build relationships with the creative community.

Business Sponsorship through the Transylvania Arts Council mutually benefits your business and our creative community. Your support helps us enhance the quality of life in Transylvania County by celebrating and nurturing the creative spirit of artists, youth and individuals throughout the County.  Brevard’s creative community is made up of engaged seniors, diverse artists, mid-career professionals and families who enjoy supporting local businesses and believe that the arts are integral to our community.
