Support the Arts

Benefits of Donating to the Arts Council


Each show presented at the Performing Arts Center is a catalyst for enrichment, involvement and economic growth in our community.

How do the performing arts impact our community?

  • Rental revenue is generated for the WRPS system every time a show is booked.
  • Advertising dollars are generated through media and print advertising.
  • Patrons planning to attend a show may shop for something new to wear, dine at a local restaurant, or stay at a local hotel, along with visiting artists.
  • Sponsoring organizations receive recognition through program advertising.
  • Lobby refreshments, which are sponsored by local youth and nonprofit groups, raise funds for student trips, community work and education programs.
  • Arts in Education programs offer area youth the opportunity to meet and learn from professional artists. Student performances impact up to 800 students at one time. For many, it will be their first time experiencing a live performance.
