The Corporate Fund’s Leadership Committee, an exclusive group of business leaders, has been a vital resource to Lincoln Center for over 45 years. This important leadership team ensures that Lincoln Center remains the world’s premier performing arts complex while making significant economic contributions ($2.4 billion each year) to New York City.
The Leadership Committee represents Lincoln Center's diverse and widespread constituency, reflecting the best of the national and international corporate worlds. Committee members are responsible for raising vital unrestricted funds for 10 world-class performing arts organizations at Lincoln Center.
- A $25,000 minimum annual contribution is required for membership on the Leadership Committee.
- Members are asked to personally solicit new corporate prospects. Solicitation lists and letters are prepared for each member.
- Attendance is required at two meetings annually—one in the spring and one in the fall. Meeting materials are provided onsite, where members will discuss campaign progress.
- Attendance at one of two donor appreciation events is encouraged. These are key opportunities for members to introduce prospects to Lincoln Center.
- If possible, we suggest hosting a gathering or event to thank existing donors and cultivate new prospects.
- Members are expected to provide incremental support to Corporate Fund events
In addition to participating in high-profile networking opportunities, members are entitled to benefits such as:
- Invitations to donor events throughout the year;
- Access to Concierge Services (a members-only ticketing service that connects you with the best seats at all performances across campus—before they’re on sale to the general public);
- Visibility on our website and in a number of printed materials, such as business publications, advertisements, and Lincoln Center Playbills (which are seen by over 5 million patrons annually);
- Recognition in the Lincoln Center Corporate Fund Annual Report; and
- Other benefits commensurate with gift level, as detailed in our Membership Benefits Guide.
