This Sponsorship Campaign is for 2018. Your sponsorship applies to MCMA activities and events in 2018 only.
Our primary goal with this fundraiser is to raise enough funds to hire a full-time executive director to help our organization grow and do even more for the downtown. Hiring staff is a great milestone in the growth of our organization; however, it is very financially demanding. Additionally, the many events and activities and initiatives that we put on for the community are also very costly and some do not reap any proceeds at all.
By financially sponsoring our volunteer-only, non-profit organization, you make it possible for us to put on the great events that our community has come to enjoy like the First Friday Art Walk, the Swale Music Festival, the Flame + Flare Halloween Festival, the Shelf Ice Brew Fest, the Taste of Michigan City, the Third Thursday Music Night, and the other smaller events. It also helps us contribute to the downtown in other ways such as by promoting our fantastic businesses and restaurants located in the UAD through our Uptown Arts District web page and Facebook page, install downtown light pole banners, install downtown wayfinding maps and signs, and continue to fight for more amenities and streetscape and functional improvements throughout the UAD. None of these things are possible without your generous contributions, and you can take great pride in knowing that with your funding the downtown will continue to grow and be the best it can possibly be.
