Give a little, Help A Lot! Prairie Music has a lot of different things for a lot of different people. Become a Patron and/or a Sponsor of our upcoming fundraising events.

Originating in 1997, the Prairie Music Patrons Program is an annual pledge of support for the long-term programs funded by PMA. Examples of patron support purchases include marching band uniforms (a $65-$70,000 expenditure), large brass instruments ($5-$20,000 each), and show choir risers.

Questions? Please feel free to e-mail our Patron’s chairperson. Amy Ellsworth

To Become a Patron

All you have to do is make a contribution of any size. At each concert, we publish an alphabetical list of our Patrons in the program. We welcome all kinds of Patrons: students, grandparents, neighbors, and friends of music at Prairie.

You can also e-mail us to send you a form or look for the form in the next music program.

To Become an Event Sponsor

Sponsoring an event depends on the event’s needs and opportunities. Depending on the event, the amount of cash and in-kind donations determine the type of recognition available for that event. Are larger events that have programs or banners, we offer space to promote businesses and/or performers. All sponsors will be mentioned during the event and mentioned on our website. We welcome all kinds of Patrons: students, grandparents, neighbors, and friends of music at Prairie.

THANK YOU to our Prairie Music Supporters
