Sponsorship Info

The support of businesses and foundations is a vital part of helping us to bring outstanding, high quality programming to our community while teaching people about visual and performing arts.

Because only 31% of UB's annual budget comes from New York State, the University is unable to supply programming funds to the Center for the Arts. We operate on earned revenue and philanthropy. Your participation is more than just dollars - it lets us inspire the minds of young and old while we encourage the actors, musicians, dancers, sculptors, filmmakers and artists of tomorrow. We have a number of opportunities available that will allow you to partner with the UB Center for the Arts in bringing the wonders of the arts to hundreds of thousands of people each year.
