Funders and Supporters

INSTITUTIONAL AND GOVERNMENT SUPPORT

The Cedar’s success is only possible with the support of funding partnerships with foundations, corporations, and government agencies. We work closely with our partners to identify opportunities to meet our aligned objectives of supporting the presentation of high-quality live music, making it accessible to all audiences, and strengthening our community. To discuss institutional support and sponsorship options, please contact Emmy Carter at ecarter@thecedar.org.
