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. Many businesses have been impacted economically this past year due to COVID. Our sponsorship revenue has decreased by 40% this year.
  • 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. Over the past year, the Albany Parks & Recreation Department lost $1,000,000 in revenue due to facility closures and program modifications. Some changes were pandemic-related and others were because of the current City budget situation. This year's concert series have one fewer concert due to budget constraints. Across the City and within our department we have made reductions and modifications wherever we can save money and continue to provide a similar level of services. 
  • 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.
