Corporate and Foundation Partners

We are grateful for our corporate and foundation partners. Providing a significant portion of the school’s funding, they are truly the pillars of support for the Kansas City Art Institute.

The investment these organizations are making in our students, faculty, programs and facilities directly impact the future of art and design in America, the creative culture in Kansas City, the economic health of this region and the lives of many talented young people who will go on to be leaders in their fields.

Corporations and foundations can support KCAI in several different ways: through the Corporate Partners program, through sponsorship of the annual fundraising event and through grant support.

Our Corporate Partners program offers a variety of opportunities for organizations to become more involved with students, faculty and alumni, including invitations to on-campus student exhibitions and sales, discounts on continuing education classes and a variety of recognition benefits.

Many organizations choose to support KCAI's scholarship fund through a sponsorship of our annual fundraising event. This year’s event will be the Art and Design Auction on Saturday, June 1, 2013. Sponsorship support provides organizations with an exciting evening of entertainment plus a unique and valuable marketing opportunity. There are several sponsorship levels to choose from as well as special sponsorship opportunities. For more information on how to become a sponsor, contact Brigette Chirpich at 816-802-3483 or bchirpich@kcai.edu.
 
The Kansas City Art Institute offers a variety of projects amenable to specific grant funding.
