Your Ultimate Guide to
Funding Your Bronze Statue Project
Here at Big Statues, our Master Sculptor, Matt Glenn and his team are dedicated to ensuring our statues are done to the highest standards. We recognize that art of this caliber comes with a high price tag and with high expectations. Cost can often be a barrier and we are here to support our customers from concept through to the unveiling. This includes helping our customers find ways to fund their projects and over the years we have been instrumental in dozens of fundraising campaigns, events and initiatives.
Below, we have complied a list of the different ways communities and individuals have funded their statues. If your community, organization or non-profit is looking to commission a bronze statue, but you haven’t quite found a way to pay for it entirely; we can help! There area a variety of ways that public art can be funded in part or entirely, depending on the placement, purpose and entities involved. We have also helped private individuals and companies raise funds through donations, crowd-funding programs and events. We have created this guide to help people recognize the different options for funding statues and encourage our customers to explore whether or not they could benefit from the experience of others.
With over 20 years of experience, we can often assist with fundraising ideas by finding grants and helping to create momentum regarding your fundraising efforts through social media. Keep in mind every community and funding source varies and so this guide is meant to navigate the vast options, some of which MAY apply to your proposed statue.
Big Statues would love to be part of your project! Let’s find a way to make it happen together.
