The Lakeside Chautauqua Foundation identifies, cultivates, coordinates and stewards relationships between corporations and foundations that support Lakeside's highest priorities. Corporate sponsorships are flexible, as packages are tailored to meet specific needs.


A variety of sponsorship opportunities are offered, including educational seminars, Hoover Auditorium evening performances or Lakeside Symphony Orchestra concerts. Sponsorships are available at a minimum of $5,000 and are restricted support to the Lakeside Fund each year.

In addition to event sponsorships, corporations and businesses have the opportunity to sponsor the Lakeside Symphony Showcase. This unique event invites patrons to hear performances of small ensembles comprised of symphony musicians. Corporations and businesses can sponsor an ensemble or the entire event.

Foundation Relations
