DIRECT SPONSORS
Direct sponsorships are small sponsorships designed to make it easy to get your company’s logo in front of your target audience. Direct sponsors make a one-time, specific contribution to cover a FringeNYC expense and receive the recognition described below. Direct sponsorships may be combined with advertising in order to increase the impact. Please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it if you are interested in one of our Direct Sponsorships.

A few examples of Direct Sponsorships include:

  • BADGE SPONSORS - Two Sponsors of $2500 each Have your logo prominently displayed on the badges worn by our participants, VIPS and pass holders. Looking for two sponsors, one for each side of the badge. Small but prominent logo placement. Perfect way to show these artists and arts patrons that you support us! Ideal for arts related industries, websites, commercial productions, agencies, etc. Your logo on all 5,000 badges….worn around their necks for the entire festival!
  • PROGRAM COVER SPONSORS - One Sponsor of $2500. You or your company will receive one full page color ad on the program shell that surrounds the programs handed out to each individual person attending one of over 1,300 performances. Last year, that was 75,000 people who spent time staring at an ad for the few minutes prior to and after FringeNYC Performances. Talk about your captive audience! This is an easy way to show your support, and remind our audience about your show, product or service.
  • FringeU SPONSOR - One Sponsor of $5000 FringeU, the "thinking and talking" component of FringeNYC, is the place to participate in panel discussions and workshops. Hear some of the best and brightest exchange ideas, their inspiration, and what's happening in theatre today. Previous panelists have included Judith Malina, Richard Foreman, Lola Pashalinski, Donna Walker-Kuhne, Anne Hamburger and Mark Russell. FringeNYC is New York's liveliest festival for the experimental performing arts, and FringeU is its equally lively 'academy'. In recognition of your sponsorship of FringeU, we will place your advertisement on the program for each FringeU event, and on the FringeU page of the website and program guide. Perfect opportunity for affiliated service, product, business or advocacy organization.
  • FringeJR SPONSOR – One Sponsor of $5000 FringeJR is FringeNYC for families! In addition to full FringeJR productions, FringeJR presents “Fort FringeJR” -- for two Sundays during FringeNYC, one of our most beautiful parks becomes a place of entertainment, crafts, stories and wonderment for children and their parents. In recognition of your sponsorship of FringeJR, we will place your advertisement on the program for each FringeJR event, and on the FringeJR page of the website and program guide. Perfect opportunity for a product, business or publication wishing to reach families.

VENDOR PARTNERS
Vendor partners provide a pro-bono or significantly reduced-cost product or service for FringeNYC and our participants. Items provided directly replace a line item in the production budget for FringeNYC. Because Vendor partners provide items which we need in order to produce FringeNYC, they are recognized by having their small logo placed in the Vendor Partner section of our donor / sponsor recognition page in the Official FringeNYC Program Guide, on our website, and via any signage or logo representation that is inherent to the product or service (i.e. any painted logo that normally appears on the rental truck being provided free of charge to FringeNYC). Please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it if you are interested in one of our Vendor Partnerships.

Currently sought Vendor Partnerships include: Badges, Two rental cargo vans for the month of August + one box truck for one weekend, Venue Director kits (power drill, small flashlight, tape – list provided upon request), Rental chairs for audience seating, cafe tables and chairs, space in a parking garage for the month of August, printing services (list provided upon request), ventless or windowless air conditioners, and a large storefront location in the West Village to serve as FringeCENTRAL for the month of August

RESTAURANT PARTNERS
We’re seeking one restaurant partner near each of our twenty venues. Restaurant partners pay $200, and receive a business card sized advertisement on the map insert of the official FringeNYC Program Guide. We strongly encourage our restaurant partners to utilize this space in order to offer a FringeNYC discount. Your establishment then becomes the recommended restaurant for that venue.

IN-KIND DONORS / PRODUCT PLACEMENT OPPORTUNITIES / VOLUNTEER REWARDS
In-kind donors have the opportunity to provide branded welcome bag items for our participants. It is a unique opportunity to provide a branded sample of something to our artists and volunteers. It works great for product launches, particularly for items that our artists will appreciate during FringeNYC. In-Kind donations are also sought for FringeJR (see below). You supply the little extra with your logo on it, and we use it for the entire festival! What could be easier than that? Talk about instant exposure! If you have a product that our artists and VIP's would appreciate in their welcome bags, we'd be happy to distribute them!

We are particularly looking for stuff to make the summer heat a littler more tolerable - bath and body products, sunscreen, visors, hats, small fans or personal cooling units, nutrition bars, meal bars, bottled water, and that crazy thing that you have that we haven't thought of yet! We'd also love coupons good for a local coffee or bagel.

We are also looking for FringeJR supplies (cookies, juice, books, art supplies, crayons, chalk, paint, paint brushes, etc.).

Lastly, we are seeking theatre tickets (for performances in September and October) to use as volunteer incentives. This is a great way for other theatre producers to do their part, and has become an “industry secret” -- a great way to paper the house for your fall previews or opening. Our loyal and deserving theatre-loving volunteers make a great audience!

  • WHAT IS . . .

  • WHO IS . . .

  • & HOW DO . . .

FringeNYC? The New York International Fringe Festival (FringeNYC) is the largest multi-arts festival in North America, with more than 200 companies from all over the world performing for 16 days in more than 20 venues. In addition to 1200 incredible performances, FringeNYC includes (click to learn more):

FringeU   
FringeJR
 
FringeHIGH
 
FringeAL FRESCO
 
FringeART
 
FringeCLUB

FringeNYC will celebrate its 18th Anniversary August 8th - 24th, 2014.

FringeNYC? Although FringeNYC is a production of The Present Theatre Company, Inc., it takes:
75,000 audience members
5,000 artists
2,000 registered volunteers
1,200 performances
200 shows
20 venues
18 dollar advance tickets
16 days and
2 full-time employees

to make FringeNYC happen.

We do this? Good question! In 1997, our budget was $74,000. Today, it's more than a million dollars. We must seek and secure support from donors in order to "bridge the gap" between rising costs and our desire to keep ticket prices low. Your donation helps us grow to meet the challenges of the future!  Support of FringeNYC has a tremendous impact on indie theatre. We appreciate it!
