There are many ways to contribute

Art Center Emergency Fund

The Center for the Arts was in the middle of a Grand Re-Opening when COVID-19 forced the cancelation of events across the country. After an extensive 18-month renovation and raising over $3 million, The Center was relying on ticket sales and event income to pay off newly purchased equipment, and to cover staffing and operating costs.

Take your support to the next level by donating to our Youth Arts Education programs, sponsoring an artist, or making a gift to our Annual Fund. Your contribution helps make the arts accessible to our entire community.

During her tenure as the executive director of The Center for the Arts, Julie Baker developed the Innovation Fund to allow The Center to take greater artistic risks that were otherwise cost-prohibitive. The fund has been utilized to present a variety of artists and culturally rich experiences. We hope to continue this fund and her vision to expand minds, inspire the future, and guarantee that diverse artistic experiences remain accessible to all in our community. Learn More.
