How to Become a
Business Partner

“CATA epitomizes what we stand for as a business. They’re one of our favorite organizations to partner with. We’re proud to be a CATA sponsor.”

CATA really is a COMMUNITY arts organization, and partnerships with our business community are critical to sustaining our year-round programs and public events–including our Annual Gala & Performance Weekend, Poetry Reading, Annual Art Show and Art on Tour exhibits. CATA offers numerous opportunities for our business community to underwrite and support our programs and events.
