Personal Giving

Support Civic Music Association and ensure central Iowa’s continued growth as an economic and cultural center.

Donate Now

As a not-for-profit, Civic Music Association relies on community support to enrich and educate the central Iowa community through provocative, world-class musical performances by legends and rising stars. Community support also allows us to offer free Partners in Music Education Programs, bringing our guest artists out into the community, benefiting thousands of children, young adults and the general public each year.

Please consider a sustaining gift, an easy and efficient way for you to support the concerts and programs you cherish. Sustaining supporters make an ongoing, monthly contribution through secure, automatic monthly payments from your credit card or debit card.

Gifts of $10 per month, the equivalent of three coffee drinks, combined with contributions from your friends and neighbors, really do make a difference in our ability to bring you great live music experiences.

Corporate Partnerships

Civic Music Association understands that when a corporation invests in marketing, they expect a return on that investment. Civic Music Association returns more than outstanding entertainment – we promote your corporation in a way that makes it stand apart. Civic Music Association can help your company achieve its marketing/ sponsorship objectives through an affiliation with our internationally-acclaimed concerts and Partners in Music Education Programs.

Business leaders who understand the value of arts and culture and, as important, the value of well-spent marketing dollars, enjoy  benefits that can be tailored to specific objectives.
