firstworks has revolutionized the arts in providence

FirstWorks is committed to creating customized relationships with our Corporate Sponsors. From a $250 ad to a $25,000 Presenting Sponsorship, there are lots of ways to reach our premium audience and contribute to FirstWorks' momentum.


Our reach is powerful, and growing! Key stats:

  • - 20,000 diverse community members attend our programs annually
  • - 50% of our audience is between the ages of 40 and 59
  • - Nearly half of our audience attends from outside Providence
  • - Audience segments span Rhode Island's diverse communities and include children and families, culture vultures, university students and faculty, and 20-something music/club aficionados.

Our Sponsors enjoy:

  • - High profile visibility at packed indoor/outdoor venues throughout the city
  • - Recognition as community leaders/active corporate citizens
  • - Opportunities for staff and client enrichment

Thanks to our 2013-14 supporters

FirstWorks is made possible through the generous support of individuals, foundations, small businesses, and corporations. We are equally grateful for continuing support from the City of Providence's Department of Art, Culture & Tourism, Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
