A city needs a literary heart in order to thrive, and Lighthouse wants you to be a part of it. Through your support of quality literary programming for youth and adults, you enrich the cultural landscape in Colorado. Sponsoring events with visiting authors and literary folk is an effective way to reach an educated and thoughtful audience while making a tax deductible donation.
There are several levels of support for visiting writers—some that include tickets and exclusive VIP access to award-winning authors. One of them is sure to meet your needs. If not, we’ll work with you to create the perfect package.
To find out more about supporting Lighthouse events, please contact Laurie Wagner, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 2016 Lighthouse Visiting Author Series
Join the excitement and unique opportunity to rub elbows with nationally acclaimed authors at Lighthouse. This is your chance to sit down with Pulitzer Prize-winning writers in intimate classrooms, informal living rooms, private homes, and on our wraparound porch. Our goal is simple: to enliven our city’s cultural conversation.
Between February and November this year, at least 20 authors (plus others who are still in the works) will visit and share their literary secrets in workshops, readings, and friendly gatherings, and you can be an active part of that.
As part of your personal philanthropy or through your business, sponsorship is giving with benefits.
For the literary enthusiast or small business, consider our most popular sponsorship, the Select Sponsor. With this sponsorship, you receive two tickets to all of the VIP receptions and Inside the Writer's Studio events, two tickets for the Lit Fest parties, vouchers for craft classes and books by the authors, and more. This includes the private VIP receptions with Michael Ondaatje, our Lit Fest authors, and Jess Walter. This sponsorship gives you and your guest access to great authors that is not available.
The Signature Sponsor offers the most personal contact. You receive more tickets and all the VIP events of the Select Sponsor PLUS you and a group of your friends or clients will enjoy a private tea or cocktail party with one of the authors, a rare opportunity to sit down with a nationally known writer. Each author will only do one of these events, so the selection is on a first-come basis.
Want the most exposure for your business? The Presenting Sponsor will put your name and logo up front in the marketing activities and at each event all year long, with opportunities for tickets and broad company promotion.

The sponsor list is growing and some levels will soon be sold out!
