The Ordway provides unique opportunities to enhance company visibility, demonstrate commitment to the community, engage prospective clients, and reward employees with unforgettable experiences.

Foundation and government giving

The Ordway is deeply grateful for the support of our foundation and government donors.

And we deeply appreciate the voters of Minnesota’s support of the Clean Water, Land, and Legacy Amendment, which makes it possible for all members in our community to participate in the arts.

The Ordway gratefully recognizes the work of Minnesota Citizens for the Arts in advocating for the Legacy Amendment, as well as for their ongoing efforts to secure funding for the arts in Minnesota.

Corporate grants

The Ordway is also very grateful for support from our corporate foundation partners. We are fortunate to be surrounded by a business community with a strong culture of giving. Together with our foundation partners, the Ordway enhances the region’s cultural vitality, build community, and ensure that every child can participate in the arts at least once during their school career.
