Support the Grand

Invest in the Art You Cherish

As a non-profit organization that presents the best music, comedy, and dance, The Grand is accountable to you and many others who treasure it as a live performance venue, a center for the arts, and a provider of community education programs. You and the others who love The Grand are “the owners,” and the key to a stronger, more vital Grand is many owners doing their part to maintain this valuable community asset. By joining others who make a gift to The Grand this year, you’ll be doing your part to help preserve this beautiful and intimate facility for all to enjoy.
