Our Coronado Theatre sponsors help to ensure that we can continue to serve our region, strengthening our economy, and exemplifying civic pride and excellence. Sponsor support means we are able to deepen our commitment to uplift our community with our youth programs and by preserving the Coronado Theatre, a registered National Historic Landmark, with impeccable historic integrity.
The Coronado Theatre is a visible and important part of the Rockford community and region. We have several sponsorship opportunities and can work with you to create a custom sponsorship package to meet your goals.

The Bergstrom Inc. Charitable Foundation believes in the power of our citizens to make our community a wonderful place to live. Our community's crown jewel, the Coronado Theatre is here today, because a group of citizens came together and formed the Friends of the Coronado, rallied our community and completed a restoration with impeccable standards. Twenty years later the Friends organization continues to serve the Coronado with proven historic preservation expertise and care for our community. We are proud to support the work of the Friends of the Coronado twenty years ago and now.
The Coronado Performing Arts Center is a stunning example of both the rich history of Rockford and the vision of a community working together towards a future that guarantees accessible art, culture, and entertainment to the next generation of Rockford families.
