Welcome

Round House Business Council

The Round House Business Council is a sponsorship opportunity for businesses to expand their reach and partner with a cultural gem of Bethesda. The Business Council is a unique opportunity that brings together corporate sponsors that provide financial resources for Round House and cultivates partnerships between the arts, local businesses, and the community. This type of support helps ensure Round House can continue producing world-class artistic, educational, and community engagement programs.
 
Business Council members provide vital year-round support through financial support or in-kind donations, including goods, professional services, and discounts. Sponsors enjoy a variety of benefits including:

  • Visibility – on the Round House website, in Round House spaces including the theatre and educational center, in show programs, and throughout various internal and external publications

  • Access – through discounted or complimentary tickets and VIP receptions

  • Impact – positively affecting the community by supporting Round House’s extensive artistic and educational programs

  • Entertainment – use of Round House event or meeting space

 
With Business Council membership starting at just $2,500, Round House works alongside each sponsor to create a recognition and benefit plan based on individual company needs and level of support.
 
The following breakdown of benefits serves as a template for Council members. Round House can tailor a recognition and benefit plan for members based on your company’s philanthropic goals and objectives.
