At the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW), we value creativity, individualism, and innovative ideas. In that spirit, we are rolling out a new menu of sponsorship opportunities for local businesses!

As a non-profit organization, CHAW depends on community and business support for part of its operating budget. Your sponsorship will help provide tuition assistance, outreach, and education programs so that the arts are accessible to all, regardless of financial background.

At the same time, your business can gain valuable exposure to the diverse group of people who attend CHAW’s programs.  We can help you choose the sponsorship that will reach the audience you want.
