How does all this fringy goodness happen?
BOOM is fueled by gifts and donations from individuals, sponsorships from small, local businesses and large corporations, as well as funding from foundations. The festival would not exist without the support of our friends, sponsors and community members.
Now it’s time to do more, build more, become more.
If we are to be an enduring, vital part of this community, we need funding partners who share our vision. We need sponsors who understand the importance of creating an environment where the arts and talent can thrive.
