2017 Honoree
The Dow Chemical Company (Midland, Michigan)
Dow Chemical CompanyDow has provided generous annual financial support to community theatre in the Great Lakes Bay region of Michigan, as well as program-specific marketing and employee-driven fundraising and volunteer support. Upcoming productions are promoted through brief lunchtime performances and via email discounts to their “New Hires” group. Dow employees are constantly encouraged to become active as volunteers and as theatre donors. Midland Center for the Arts - Center Stage Theatre invited members of their leadership team to participate in a Fundraising Breakfast for the theatre, which raised over $250,000 from Dow employees alone. As members of an organization that focuses on the interplay between art and science, Dow employees can frequently be seen on stage, behind the scenes, and at the table of the theatre’s governing board meeting. Dow’s commitment to community theatre through donations of time, capital and talent truly makes Midland, Michigan a vibrant artistic community and a better place to live.
