Community Partnerships

Great work doesn’t grow on trees…

Creators of performance and dramatic stories at all stages of their careers call the Orchard Project home, and work created in our upstate New York programs have gone to Broadway, Off-Broadway, and stages across the world. But our work would not be possible without the generous support of our community. We are grateful for leadership support from individuals and institutions in our community and invite you to join their ranks. Our Community Partners provide vital support to The Orchard Project’s mission-driven artistic and education initiatives, allowing us bring world class artists and work to the upstate NY region and to meet the creative needs of storytellers around the country and world.

Bespoke Benefits

 Your investment in the Orchard Project benefits the creative economy of the upstate NY region, your company, executives, and employees. As part of your contribution, the Orchard Project will provide your organization with access, discounts, and corporate recognition opportunities. The Orchard Project can also construct a benefits package unique to your organization’s needs.


Community Partners can identify particular events that they might want to sponsor, and are recognized throughout the many different activities of the Orchard Project, from credit on our website, program materials, and e-blasts to an email list of over 40k, ads in our Saratoga festival and gala programs, and more.


Community Partners have the opportunity to intersect with the Orchard Project’s growing community of work and artists (more than 1,500 artists and growing), who also include some of the most well known people working on stage and screen today. Possibilities include creation of sponsored sessions structured on the work of your organization and our named Residency Program, which fully underwrites various residencies and allows for partners to be integrated with the long-term narrative of various artists’ work.
