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.
You may be aware that the Grand does much more than create great performances in a beautiful, historic setting. It also provides community education programs such as the Stage of Discovery school matinee series, the Summer Children’s Theater, and the Arts Academy at The Grand that introduce live performance to nearly 20,000 children and families -- the next generation of Grand patrons. It also partners with many community organizations to stage more than 300 events annually.
