From Society Memberships to Sponsoring an Artist or Event, you can help keep the Savannah VOICE Festival going and growing.

Festival Presenter: One Sponsor will have the title of presenter of the annual Festival per year.

Legacy Fund: This fund gives to the overall administration of the program in staff, faculty and production.

Artist Sponsorships & Scholarships: Without the singers, there is no program. Underwriting the costs of artists, one individual or partial scholarships for a few, can be a wonderful way to connect on a more personal level. Artists grow under this support and donors feel part of the success of each artist.

Outreach & Education: You can impact the community through ticket subsidies, supporting school programs and free public events.

Event Sponsors: The many concerts, programs and events held during the Festival and throughout the year need your support. Your brand can receive a tremendous amount of local and national attention by funding a specific, or many, events.

Business Partner: This can mean everything from in kind services, barter, media support or tourism partnerships.

VOICE SOCIETY MEMBERSHIP: Becoming a Member is a great way to become part of the VOICE family. With special discounts around the city of Savannah, insider information and special events, it’s a great way to make a difference and enjoy the music even more!
