Summer Camp $5,000

CHAW Summer camp provides just the right balance of creativity and recreation in a safe, warm, and inviting space for exploration. We offer half-day, full-day, and specialty camps from June through August and welcome children from Pre-K through high school to participate. Sponsorship ensures we never turn a child away for inability to pay.

Youth Arts Program (YAP) $3,000

YAP is a comprehensive after-school arts program that provides both a safe space to explore a wide range of creative outlets and a structured learning environment to build skills in a wide variety of artistic disciplines. No matter which class a child takes, all will come away with increased Confidence, Creativity, and Community–the core tenets of CHAW’s program.

Outreach Workshops $1,000 per workshop

Mobile, pop-up outdoor arts experiences that we can deliver–free–to families in our neighborhood and across the city bring art to those who might not otherwise receive it. Arts activities vary, but are always accessible to kids of all ages and serve our neighbors wherever they are.


Community Lawn Party $1,500 per event

These free monthly events are opportunities for our neighbors to gather safely in our courtyard for great local music and great local art. We are thrilled to be able to offer this outdoor space for community building, which also provides a platform for local artists to grow their audience base. This combination of arts and community is at the core of who we are at CHAW.

Monthly Sponsorship: $1100 for new sponsors

Monthly sponsorships provide steady support for CHAW and demonstrate your investment in the community with a prominently placed banner at the entrance of our building. This high traffic location is particularly popular with realtors, law firms, and other service providers.

CHAW is home to organizations and artists who utilize CHAW’s highly affordable space for classes, rehearsal and performance including our theater company in residence – Taffety Punk Theater Company, and our community organization in residence – Serve Your City/Ward 6 Mutual Aid.

About CHAW:

CHAW’s unique blend of artistry, education and community over 50 years sets it apart from other organizations. Our mission of “building inclusive communities through the arts” is rooted in the belief that art and community-building are synergistic. Serving over 5000 people annually, our overarching goals are to uplift local arts and artists, promote artistic literacy, and share creative resources. Collectively, this sets the stage for our vision to “connect and transform”. This powerful mechanism for propelling social change is at the heart of all we do: Better art makes better justice. And we do it all thanks to your support. The following programs provide a snapshot, but we are always open to new and unconventional partnerships and creative thinking about tailoring sponsorships to meet your needs.

Here are just some of the ways the arts are good for business:

America’s nonprofit arts industry generates $166.3 billion in economic activity every year, resulting in $227.5 billion in federal, state and local tax revenues.

Spending by arts audiences on goods and services in addition to admission tickets—such as food, lodging and gifts—annually generates more than $102.5 billion in revenue.

Most U.S. employers (97%) say creativity is increasingly important to them. Eighty-five percent of employers looking to hire creative people say they are unable to find the applicants they seek.
