Goal of the Pence Gallery Sponsors Fund
With your support, we can do amazing things! Our sponsors love the visual arts, and want to make an impact that they can see locally. Sponsors help cover the costs of coordinating an exhibit, including shipping, installation, and marketing. Your donation helps and contributes to creating a culturally rich and unique environment.
Serving the Community
The Pence Gallery’s mission is to educate and inspire the community through offering high caliber art exhibits by local and regional artists and providing education programs for all ages. Every year, we offer 18,000 visitors free admission to encounter amazing exhibits, including more than 1400 children in our hands-on art programs.
Our business donors receive the added benefit of increasing their company’s visibility in the community for their philanthropy and can reach new audiences through the Pence’s marketing. All sponsors receive recognition in our member invitations (circulation 600), quarterly newsletter (circulation 600), and the Pence, visited by over 1400 people every month. In addition, sponsors recognition is an important part of the monthly Pence column in the Davis Enterprise newspaper, website, and Facebook.
