Corporate Partnerships

Great work doesn’t grow on trees…

Creators of performance and dramatic stories at all stages of their careers call The Orchard Project (OP) home. 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. Corporate sponsorships provide vital support to the Orchard Project’s mission-driven artistic and education initiatives, allowing us to meet the creative needs of storytellers around the country and world.

Bespoke Benefits

Your investment in the OP benefits your company, executives, and employees with access, discounts, and corporate recognition opportunities. The Orchard Project can also construct a benefits package unique to your organization’s needs.


Corporate Partners are recognized throughout the many different activities of the Orchard Project, from credit on our website, program materials, and e-blasts to an industry email list of over 40k, ads in our gala program, and more.


Corporate Partners have the opportunity to intersect with the OP’s growing community of work and artists (more than 1,500 artists and growing). Possibilities include creation of sponsored sessions structured on the work of your organization, meetings with OP staff to facilitate work and introductions, 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.
