What is the Advocates Circle?

The Community Arts Partnership has a proud history of administering quality programing and the time is right for this organization to do more. There are currently new opportunities, partnerships and collaborations being developed - and that's why we created the Advocates Circle.

Becoming a member of the Advocates Circle requires a pledge of (a minimum of) $300 a year for three years. Recently 20 of our friends and neighbors stepped forward to make such a pledge!

We invite you to become part of the Circle, thereby providing CAP with the resources needed to take on these important additional responsibilities: 

  • Working with local, state and national representatives to advocate effectively for Tompkins County's cultural institutions and opportunities.

  • Bring stakeholders together to define areas of mutual interest and develop clear messages and methods to advance those interests with a unified voice.  

  • Enrich local arts and cultural programs and projects through research and the development of sources of significant support from outside of Tompkins County.   

Benefits provided Advocacy Members include:

  • Invitation to CAP's annual celebration.  

  • Kickoff "first dibs" reception for our annual CAP-a-Palooza Art Sale Extraordinaire.

  • Monthly e-mail updates and news from CAP Director John Spence. 

Here is a list of those who gave support in 2018. Thank you!
