STAGE Outreach

STAGE Photo.jpgSTAGE, or Serving Together: Arena’s Giving Experience, is the new moniker for the Arena’s community engagement initiatives. STAGE pulls many of the great things the Arena has been doing for years in Greenville and the Upstate.

 

 

 

For example, in the last two years the Arena has:

  • Hosted 300 nonprofit/community events – including Skate, Roll and Stroll for disabled community members to skate on the big ice with their friends and family, along with special assistance devices
  • Donated $100,000+ in event space to local nonprofits for their cultivation and fundraising events
  • Donated nearly 600 event tickets to nonprofits for their use or charity auctions
  • Sought opportunities to improve access to the Arena—including providing adapted amenities for individuals with sensory sensitivities and workforce recruitment of individuals with disabilities.

The Arena will continue these programs under “STAGE”, inviting all nonprofits in the area to consider the Arena as a partner in fulfilling their missions.

STAGE Partners is a program designed to focus the Arena’s efforts in the community and increase our impact to best serve the two organizations designated as “STAGE Partners.” 

The Arena provides our STAGE Partners with a full corporate sponsorship package for the year, including advertising, tickets, event support, and other beneficial resources to further each nonprofit’s mission.

Note, this is not exclusive.The Arena will continue to offer rent-free event space to area nonprofits and provide tickets to events for charity auctions (as available).
