KSAT Partnership Program

Karl Stirner Arts Trail Inc. Partnership Program

Since it was formed as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization in 2016, the Karl Stirner Arts Trail Inc. (KSAT Inc.) has been working to improve the KSAT and expand the programmatic offerings that make it such an asset to the Easton community. Through these efforts and those of our partners: • There are now more than 20 artworks along the Trail; • The Young Masters Wall near the 13th Street trailhead has played host to a rotating array of creative work by local children, adults, and community-based organizations; • Programs like the “Movies Along the Trail” outdoor film series and the “Artful Dash 5K” have developed into regular community events; • Unique educational programming like the Bushkill Creek Bug Symposium and KSAT “Walk-and-Talks” led by local experts have engaged hundreds of people of all ages along the Trail; • A new pedestrian bridge connects the Trail to the SILK development across the creek; and • KSAT Inc. led the efforts to acquire the former Easton Iron & Metal property along Bushkill Drive for future expansion of the Trail.

In 2020/21, we are embarking on the next phase in the development of the KSAT Inc. through our new KSAT Partnership Program. The Partnership Program will give companies, individuals, and community partners who share our passion for the KSAT, the Bushkill Creek, and the City of Easton the ability to support our efforts and to share in cross-promotional opportunities. The goal of the Partnership Program is to create mutually-beneficial, “win-win” opportunities that benefit the KSAT as well as our participating partners. With levels ranging from $250 to $5,000 annually, there are partnership options to fit nearly every budget. We invite you to learn more about the various partnership levels on the page that follows, and we welcome any ideas you may have on custom benefits tailored to fit the needs of you or your business. The future of the KSAT is only limited by our collective imagination. With the strong support of our partners, the KSAT truly can continue on the path to becoming a world-class venue that attracts local, regional, and national audiences.
