Institutional Donors

Becoming an Institutional Donor to the Marty Gear Costuming Arts and Sciences Fund is a great way for companies and other institutions to put their name in front of the costuming community. The Fund advanced the art and science of costuming by offering grants to innovative costuming projects and activities that benefit the costuming community.

Your company can participate by making a one-time tax-deductible donation to the Fund, or by becoming a Fund Sponsor. Sponsorships are partnership opportunities to encourage projects or activities in specific areas. Your sponsorship contributions can be used to make grants that meet certain criteria in line with your company’s interests. Not only will you receive acknowledgement as a Institutional Donor, but your company’s name can also be associated with qualifying grants made from your sponsorship donations.
