Richard Baron Leadership CircleCOCA invites you to share the vision.
As a maturing institution, COCA must balance innovation with the nurturing of existing programs, its commitment to outreach, the preservation of its historic facility, and the building of reserves that will enable the institution to insure its future.
We invite you to join the Richard Baron Leadership Circle at COCA. Named for COCA’s founder whose foresight and perseverance created a unique cultural resource in St. Louis, the Richard Baron Leadership Circle at COCA grows out of a need to maintain COCA’s signature programs, while increasing COCA’s impact in a variety of new areas. For supporters who share the passion for COCA’s mission and the vision for its long-term impact on St. Louis, this new giving circle provides a sound investment and the key to COCA’s sustainability.
Your participation in the Richard Baron Leadership Circle provides you with a front row seat for all the exciting programs and initiatives that are happening now at COCA. Leadership giving at all levels ($1,500-$50,000 and above) provides you with tiered benefits. You will be invited to a variety of COCA performances and openings and have access to speakers and artists in residence, and will be recognized in COCA materials and signage. Richard Baron Leadership Circle – as a “thank you” for your patronage.
