Sponsor an Artist-In-Residence, Exhibition, or Program

McColl Center offers unique sponsorship opportunities to achieve your philanthropic vision while promoting the success of the organization and its mission. Sponsorship is an exciting way for individuals to become engaged with a particular artist, exhibition or program. Each four-month artist residency costs $50,000 on average, and the difference of $1,000 can allow an artist to achieve something beyond your average residency. All investment opportunities will be tailored to meet the sponsor’s goals and will be commensurate with giving levels.

If you are interested in supporting McColl Center in a major way, and would like to discuss upcoming Artists-in-Residence, exhibitions, community engagements, and programs, contact Bob Scheer at or 704-944-8240.

Name a Space

Your major investment in McColl Center may afford you the right to name one of our beautiful studios. Naming a space represents your commitment to the Center, its mission and the artists and community we serve. McColl Center is honored to have half of its studios and galleries named by generous donors who made their commitment to the Center permanent.
