The pandemic hit arts, culture and heritage organizations hard. Despite seemingly insurmountable challenges, they shined on—finding new ways to engage and delight us. Now it's our turn to spotlight them with our support. By sponsoring the Bravo Awards Gala 2022 on February 5, you'll help sustain Bravo's mission and the missions of the 75 organizations Bravo supports. 100% of net event proceeds above Bravo's goal will go out directly in grants to Bravo's cultural partners.

The Bravo Awards Gala is the perfect showcase for the work Bravo does year-round. Through investments made by 17 local communities, Bravo provides a competitive and reliable source of funding to regional arts, culture and heritage nonprofit organizations and programs. In addition to grantmaking, Bravo also measures the positive impact of arts, culture and heritage organizations on the regional economy, and leads the vision for the future by enhancing and elevating economic development and quality of life for residents and visitors throughout Central Iowa. Proceeds from the Bravo Awards Gala help offset Bravo’s administrative expenses allowing more dollars to be invested back into the arts, culture and heritage organizations that create the entertaining and thoughtful experience we all enjoy.
