Become a Business Friend

Four times each season, September through April, we invite expert speakers with national reputations to come to Canandaigua and engage in thought-provoking dialogue.

Your financial contribution is critical to our success and allows us to present high-quality programs each year to our community. Please join us as a Business Friend of the Forum for our 2024-2025 Season.

The theme of the highly anticipated 13th season of the Ewing Canandaigua Forum is “Under the Umbrella of Democracy.” Beginning this September, we are bringing to Canandaigua four exceptional speakers with national acclaim to engage our community in thought-provoking conversations.

As a nonprofit organization, we rely on additional donations from individual citizens and local businesses to help cover the significant costs of bringing world-class speakers to our stage. Reaching nearly 400 attendees from around the area at each of our four events, the Ewing Canandaigua Forum is an exceptional opportunity to demonstrate your support for the cultural enrichment of our community.

If you share our conviction that an informed and engaged citizenry is the cornerstone of a vibrant democracy, please take a moment to review the Business Friend form and choose a donation level that best reflects your commitment to enriching our community discourse.
