DCACC Announces “Founding Donor” Opportunity

Building a strong foundation to support a thriving cultural ecosystem.

Downtown Columbia is becoming a premier destination for arts and culture in the mid-Atlantic. With Soulful Symphony’s residency at Merriweather Post Pavilion as the cultural centerpiece of a growing cultural ecosystem, the future starts now. And we need your help. Donate to the Downtown Columbia Arts and Culture Commission, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, as part of our “Founding Donor” drive and know that your support will go directly to growing world-class and accessible artistic, cultural, and community programs.

To be eligible for this special “Founding Donor” status and package of benefits, contributions must be received prior to October 1, 2019. Donors who contribute at the Choir-level or above will be included on a commemorative plaque to be installed at Merriweather Post Pavilion. All donors who contribute as part of this donation drive will be listed as a DCACC “Founding Donor” on DCACC’s website and in event programs. Donations to DCACC are tax-deductible but the value of any benefits received must be deducted for tax purposes (donors may refuse certain or all benefits); please consult your accountant or tax professional for advice.

Our “Founding Donor” drive includes the following levels. Please scroll down to see the benefits package associated with each. Donors interested in a different package of benefits are encouraged to contact us. You can donate online or mail a check payable to Downtown Columbia Arts and Culture Commission, 10475 Little Patuxent Parkway, Columbia MD 21044.
