The Center's ANNUAL FUND

The Center is a community hub, physically and virtually. Please support YOUR Center by making a contribution to our The Center's Annual Fund.

Through our virtual programming, live streams and social media content, we support local artists and community organizations, helping us all to heal and stay connected through art. Your gift, of any size, will allow us to remain strong and well positioned to deliver great things for years to come.

Generous annual donors who contribute $3,500 and above are acknowledged as CENTER FRIENDS. Center Friends receive Pre-Sale opportunities, discount codes for Center Presents tickets, and opportunities to meet with performers when possible.
