Sponsorships

  • Sponsorship covers many of the up-front costs (fees for licensing, royalties, and booking) necessary to bring quality entertainment to our community. Event revenues are often not seen for many months later. Your gift helps make the magic happen! It also allows State Street Theater to keep ticket prices affordable for as many people as possible.

    In appreciation, each level of sponsorship offers perks, such as name and/or logo recognition on our website and print materials. Choose from the following and become a 2024 Sponsor Member:

Grants

State Street Theater writes various grants that assist in making possible stage productions, equipment purchases, and capital improvements. We invite patrons who may know of other grant sources to contact us! Occasionally, families or individuals establish their own Charitable Giving Funds. Donors using these means of giving realize tax savings based on the type of Fund they established. SST is pleased to see continued increase in this means of donating. This tool can be used in any of State Street Theater donation categories. Please contact info@statestreetnewulm.org with your suggestions. 

Capital Improvement Fund

State Street Theater has conducted and completed two capital campaigns (2016 & 2022). The first addressed the separation of utilities from the classroom portion of the historic site, new apartments, the parking lots, the city water line to the theater, an electrical transformer, and more. The second addressed three new windows in the balcony, repair of balcony plaster and cement, expansion of the sprinkling system, a second driveway, new seats throughout, aisle lighting, and safety railings in the tiered balcony. As we are nearing the completion of the $700,000-second campaign, there is still a need for further donations to enable the completion of the list. You can help by donating today.

Given the age of this historic site, there are always improvements needed – replacing or extending electrical circuits, bathroom improvements, window needs, painting, plaster repair, additions to plumbing, HVAC work and more. Donations to this fund are restricted and used only for building and grounds needs.

Endowment Fund

A future goal of State Street Theater is an Endowment Fund. This would enable the theater to place funds here, building it to a size where annual withdrawals of income it produces provide additional operating dollars. Once established, no withdrawals would be made until the fund reaches at least $100,000. Until it reaches that size, its income would be reinvested to enable the corpus to grow. If you are interested in helping the Development Committee make this fund a reality or for more information, please contact mbdomeier@statestreetnewulm.org.
