YOU help arts and culture thrive in our community
You feel the magic when you attend live events. You have sung along with performers, gasped at the beautiful sounds of an orchestra, laughed aloud during musical comedies. You know what it is to sit alongside other audience members to share an experience watching your favorite musician, actor, dancer or comedian live on stage in an incredible, beautiful venue. The Foundation for the Performing Arts Center supports our local arts audience here on the Central Coast.
Your donation to the Foundation increases the ability of fellow SLO County residents to join in on those magical live arts experiences. You support us because you want to extend the accessibility of the arts to others, especially to individuals and families who might not be able to afford live arts experiences. You help us bring over 10,000 local students every year to the PAC for FREE performances. Over half of these young children come from low-income households. Their teachers tell us that they have no other opportunities to experience the performing arts throughout the year.
The COVID pandemic has impacted all of us. Venues like the Performing Arts Center (PAC) will be the last to reopen and will take the longest to recover. This year, the Performing Arts Center will lose out on $500,000 in ticket sales revenue. Will you give a gift today to help us make up the difference- dollars that you would have spent on tickets at the PAC to attend performances if our doors were open?
With your gift today, you can help us ensure that the Performing Arts Center will once again be able to open its doors and continue to provide our community.
Donate today to help us see that arts and culture thrives here on the Central Coast and that ALL of us have the opportunity to experience the magic of the arts.
