The Racine Concert Band has a successful public-private partnership with the City of Racine. While the city subsidizes the band budget, 48 advertisers and 240 patrons contribute about 45% of the total operating budget
The City of Racine budget is under immense pressure. In an environment in which police, firefighter, and administrative positions are threatened, funding for non-essential city services is minimal. The City of Racine subsidy to the band has fallen by 48% over the last twelve years. In 2015, the subsidy was cut again, by almost 15%. Private gifts to the band have increased steadily, but they are not keeping up with the cost of maintaining a full concert schedule. The band now seeks to partner with corporate sponsors to continue the summer concerts.
Corporate sponsorships, in the amount of $2,000, will enable the band to continue these popular concerts.
Businesses can purchase ads in the summer season concert program (various ad/page sizes).
