How We Say Thank You

ACG thanks are personal, heartfelt and high-impact. Here are some general guidelines for how we say thank you in each sponsorship area. We look forward to talking about what works best for you.
Print: Recognition in concert programs, brochures, and lobby signage
Online: Recognition on ACG website, blog feature, and social media posts
Spoken: Thanks from the stage
*Tickets: Four premium tickets for partial sponsors, 10 premium tickets for exclusive sponsors
*Complimentary sponsor tickets are optional and may be waived, increasing the fair market value (tax-deductibility) of your contribution.


Most people only see the front-end of ACG – the concerts – but for me the real action happens on the educational side. ACG’s Youth Orchestra will have a huge impact on the youth who participate, providing them the opportunity to play with others and perform publicly, opening their eyes to the possibilities of music. – Dr. Michael Froehls, ACGYO Sponsor
