Become a Business Friend

For more than a decade, the George M. Ewing Canandaigua Forum has provided our community with a unique opportunity for cultural enrichment. 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 2023-2024 Season.

Our 2022-2023 Season opened in September, when we hosted veteran campaign strategists Mike Murphy, a Republican, and Bob Shrum, a Democrat, who explored the political landscape and a polarized electorate. Our season continued on October 30, when Juliette Kayyem shared her expertise on preparing for disasters in an unpredictable world. In February 2023, David Cay Johnston will dive with us into income tax reform, and Michael O’Hanlon will take the stage in April 2023, to talk with us about the dynamics leading to China’s rise to global prominence.

In our 2023-24 Season, we will continue to host luminaries with rare combinations of expertise, talent, and accomplishments. We’ll focus on engaging topics of great interest to our audience of nearly 400 residents from around the region at each of the four events.

I invite you to become a Business Friend of the Forum in our 2023-2024 season. Your donation will help us continue to offer outstanding programs to the community, and you will be recognized in our 2023-2024 program booklet, which is used for all four of our events (September through April). All supporting businesses will be prominently listed as Business Friends of the George M. Ewing Canandaigua Forum. Additional benefits such as ad space in the season program booklet, shout outs from the stage, and season tickets may also be available with your donation. A sample of the ads from this season’s booklet along with a Business Friend form are shown below.
