Opportunities for Nonprofits
With the opening of the SteelStacks campus, we are very happy to inform you that we have even more opportunities for your organization to interact with ArtsQuest events and patrons! In ArtsQuest’s endeavor to support and cultivate the non-profit community of the Lehigh Valley, we are offering several opportunities for local 501(c)(3) nonprofits to help build awareness of their services.
Air Products Town Square at SteelStacks™
Located in between the ArtsQuest Center and the blast furnaces, the new Air Products Town Square at SteelStacks™ is the Lehigh Valley’s new modern day piazza. Just as the European Air Products Town Square at SteelStacks™s of old were a gathering space amid the backdrop of the aged cathedrals, the new Air Products Town Square at SteelStacks™ has the dramatic view of the iconic blast furnaces.
This outdoor community space will be a place where neighborhood residents and individuals from all over the region can gather and enjoy year round free programming that includes live music from local bands, community and school groups, solo musicians and performance art of all kinds. On any given day friends, families and neighbors will gather for alfresco dining, a family activity or dancing on the Air Products Town Square at SteelStacks™.
In addition, the Air Products Town Square at SteelStacks™ will be a resource for area nonprofits and community groups to build awareness of their services and develop and present activities and programming. For example, it could be the start or finish for a 5K, the host for a local blood drive, distribute literature about their cause, or the venue for a local community music school to showcase their talented students.
Community Booth Opportunities
ArtsQuest offers several opportunities for area 501(c)(3) and community groups to host a community booth at the following events.
- First Friday’s at the Banana Factory
On the first Friday of every month the Banana Factory comes alive for a community celebration. The Banana Factory is open to the public to enjoy food, drink, entertainment, live glass blowing and visit our amazing resident artists’ studios. Non-profit can schedule to have a table at one of the 11 First Friday’s.
If you’re interested in presenting an exhibition or performance at one of our events, please read our basic guidelines for use and then fill out the request form below. Our Operations Specialist, Emily Kocis, will review all submissions and get in touch with you to discuss the opportunity.
Donation Request Form
Due to the overwhelming number of donation requests ArtsQuest receives from our nonprofit community, we ask everyone to please fill out our official donation request form below. Submission of a request does not guarantee fulfillment, however, it does ensure consideration by our committee. Due to the volume of requests ArtsQuest receives annually we regret we are not able to honor every request. Donations will be only provided to any nonprofit once annually.
