Artist & Festival Sponsorship

Sponsor a RAD Artist

Every year, Wellspring welcomes out-of-town dance artists from across the nation and across the world to RAD Fest. RAD artists generally don’t have a lot of extra money for hotels, and sponsoring a RAD artist helps them defray their lodging costs so they can share their gifts with the Kalamazoo community without burdensome financial commitment and enjoy all that our city has to offer. The next RAD Fest takes place March 9-11, 2018, and most artists start arriving in Kalamazoo on or around March 8. There are several sponsorship levels to choose from, and each level has sponsor benefits. Wellspring is a non-profit organization, and all sponsorship donations are tax-deductible. The sponsorship levels are listed below. To sponsor an artist, click on https://squareup.com/store/radfest.
