Outdoor Music Festival


The resurgence of many communities around the nation is being fueled by initiatives focused on reinvigorating creative culture and establishing the arts as a pillar to the quality of life for residents and visitors alike.  Investing in the creative class is providing unforeseen dividends in areas such as sustainable growth, increased economic development, and expanded opportunities for tourism related activities.  Cotton Consulting is supporting such a renaissance in its community through executive level guidance as well as providing our portfolio of services to the leadership of local arts and culture organizations.

The Challenge

In order to supplement and already thriving local arts and music community, public and private leaders approached a patron of the arts to establish the metropolitan area’s inaugural outdoor musical festival. The executive leadership team required targeted fundraising resources to overcome the challenge of organizing and funding an event of this nature within an extremely condensed timeframe.

The Approach

The opportunity to contribute to an effort with such long-term significant impact presented a unique opportunity for the Cotton Consulting team. Within a matter of days, we mobilized our resources and extensive giving network to secure the necessary sponsors to support a wide variety of sponsorship levels and opportunities.

The Outcome

In just under four weeks, the Cotton Consulting team progressed from campaign initiation to successfully securing all needed sponsorships.
