ABOUT CIRC CARES
NPO & Bar Safety
Circ Cares is an initiative created by Krazieye Productions that strives to connect The Circ Bar to our community by working with nonprofit organizations. A key component of the initiative is to offer the venue for free to nonprofit organizations on Wednesdays. Circ Cares is committed to the community of Ann Arbor, and we aim to find ways to celebrate the great work these organizations do for others. We understand that many nonprofits struggle with affording space for events such as conferences, fundraisers, or panels. Therefore, we would like to ease the burden and help empower nonprofits to maximize their outreach.
Nonprofits will be offered the same support and services that other events at the Circ would be offered. In addition to the 7000 sq ft full floor venue (Max capacity 550), services may include: multiple creative setups within two bars, a lounge with fireplace, a roof deck (weather permitting), twelve 72” TVs with full multimedia capabilities (for slideshows, videos, etc.), a stage with multiple P/A setups, an independent or collaborative sound system for three spaces within the venue, valet parking (negotiable), in-house or outside catering (negotiable), marketing (social media and email), and a friendly, professional staff and security.
We request that bookings are arranged well in advance for ideal scheduling. To host a fundraiser or a charity event, the organization must be registered 501(c). Do not hesitate to contact The Circ Bar with any questions at
Circ Cares is also a bar safety program. This program intends to keep bar patrons safe on college nights. Our goal is to create an environment to encourage responsible drinking and a culture of respect and consent.
On college nights, Circ Bar will have late-night food available, water stations, and a selection of non-alcoholic beverages. Guests will be encouraged to be responsible while still having a fun night out. We have teamed up with community organizations to educate staff on various topics such as diversity, inclusion and bystander intervention. The continual training will help staff recognize harassment and other inappropriate behavior while equipping them with the skills necessary to step in and help.
