Concerts are funded by sponsors, revenue generated from Parks & Recreation programs, and donations by attendees.
- The majority of support for our concerts comes from our sponsors. They give cash and in-kind services that allows these concerts happen. They are amazing and we are endlessly grateful for their support.
- We also use revenue we create from paid classes and programs to subsidize events and programs, such as these concerts, that are offered for free to the community.
- Lastly, the donations that you contribute at the concerts are reinvested in the concerts! We appreciate the community’s generosity. We have seen a steady, ongoing decline in donations. On a great night, donations average $0.25 per person. On a typical night it is around $0.15 a person. We understand not everyone can give but appreciate those who do.
Your property tax dollars do not directly fund these concerts. For every dollar you pay in tax, the City receives $0.37. Albany Parks & Recreation only receives a small percentage of that amount. The tax revenue we do receive goes towards park maintenance and keeping basic services going. We are considered a “special fund” which means we must create our own revenue to stay a viable department.
We are thankful to our sponsors, paid program participants, and those who donate in whatever capacity they can afford during this time of recovery.
