Hello All,

We are increasingly seeing cultural organizations seeking state support for capital budgets as well as other organizations, such as our parks and zoo, seeking formal support from us for their levy efforts.

These requests typically come without an expectation of financial resources but instead wish to list us as public supporters of these efforts or write letters of support to the state legislature.

Do your organizations have a formal policy or decision-making rubric for requests like these? Some structure by which to determine when/if/in what capacity to publicly support these efforts?

Thank you in advance for your always thoughtful insight!
