The Annual Fund

Become a Friend of The Smith Center

Our most enthusiastic supporters choose to give an annual donation to enhance and maintain The Smith Center experience from both sides of the curtain.

All donors to the Annual Fund receive exclusive opportunities including artist meet-and-greets, invitations to private tours and events, and access to the performing arts in personal and exciting ways! To learn about all of our benefits, click here.

The scope of the Annual Fund is varied, but your support will…

  • Fill the gap between ticket revenue and operating costs.
  • Provide performing arts-based educational opportunities for local students. 
  • Bring world-class performances to all of our stages. 
  • Help provide low-cost events ensuring access for all. 

$250 assists with the greatest needs of The Smith Center, which includes maintenance work and improvements to our beautiful facilities.

$1,000 enhances our ability to provide technologically advanced services, like those for hearing and visually impaired patrons.

$2,000 makes it possible to offer a six-week workshop – tailored to meet specific goals and led by local teaching artists – in partnership with schools and community organizations.

$5,000 helps cover fees associated with participating in the National High School Musical Theater Awards program. This community-wide competition and the culmination event at The Smith Center celebrates and raises the profile of theater students, educators and local high school arts programs.

$8,000 enables us to bring in – for an entire week! – a Kennedy Center-affiliated teaching artist to work with more than 200 students and 50 teachers provide arts-based professional development training.

$10,000 provides significant support in allowing presentations of world renowned orchestras, dance companies, musicians and performers on all of our stages.
