Become a Corporate Partner

UMS corporate partners play a key role in supporting the culturally-rich community in which we live, work, and play. An investment in UMS, whether financial or in-kind, helps supports UMS’s three main activities: presenting a diverse array of world-class performances, providing arts education programs for all ages, and furthering the creation of new work.

Partnering with UMS, whether through sponsorship, advertising, in-kind contributions, or hospitality packages aligns your brand with one of the top five arts presenters in the country while demonstrating your commitment to the extraordinary quality of life we enjoy in Ann Arbor.

  • Program Book Advertising
  • Advertising in the UMS program book puts your business in the hands of the area’s most sought-after audience. With circulation of nearly 85,000, the UMS program book is distributed at each of UMS’s 65 performances from September through April. This full color, professionally designed piece is the official guide to each concert, with lively photos, compelling program notes, and interesting historical sidebars.

    Advertising in the UMS program book is smart investment, but don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what some of our loyal supporters have to say:

    “You’re in good company when you choose to advertise with UMS. Local businesses who want to reach educated, affluent consumers know this is the vehicle.”
    — Rhonda Foxworth, Bank of Ann Arbor
