The Mateel Community Center is a non-profit organization whose mission involves providing programs, events and services that serve the growing and changing needs and wants of our community, with an emphasis on performing and visual arts. The reality of our finances is that every year as our community grows and changes, our costs grow and change as well. For example, as funding disappears for music, art, and drama programs in our schools, our challenges to provide funding for programs such as Recycled Youth, the Spring Arts Collective, Missoula Children's Theatre, The Random Peoples Monologues Project, Mateel Meal, and the South Fork Drama Department increases. The California Arts Foundation generously provides a portion the funding for our arts programs but the majority must come from our supporters, including sponsors, advertisers and members.
Programs that Mateel sponsors and co-sponsors, in addition to the programs mentioned above, have become cherished community traditions that we all enjoy and expect to happen every year. Events such as the The Summer Arts & Music Festival, the Winter Arts Faire, Humboldt Hills Hoedown, and the Hempfest simply could not happen without the financial support of the community. That’s why we offer businesses and individuals opportunities to sponsor our events and programs through the production of our event program guides. Advertising and sponsoring Mateel events and programs in our guides, is a wonderful way to make a contribution to the Mateel, while at the same time insuring that your business receives excellent exposure thousands of people throughout the tri-county area and beyond.
