PLAY A LEADING ROLE
Join us and become a Partner in the Arts today!
Indulge your passion for the arts — please help us to continue our tradition of superb entertainment and educational programs for our community at the world-class Ferguson Center for the Arts. Whether for a moment or forever, performances at the Ferguson Center change lives for the better. Your gift to helps us nurture your love for the performing arts and spark that passion in others. Ticket sales cover only 60% of our operational costs, so our donors are a lifeline of support.
With your generosity the bright lights will continue to shine in Hampton Roads – just around the corner at Christopher Newport University’s Ferguson Center for the Arts.
The Arts are for All
The performing arts inspire passion. They serve as a conduit for life’s many messages, instilling in the audience varied emotions. A community where everyone has the opportunity to experience the performing arts is a society that is richer in understanding and broader in its appeal. Arts for All is a Ferguson Center for the Arts program that works to that end.
Over the past seven performance seasons, the Arts for All program provides subsidized tickets to children and families in at-risk communities. Administered by the Ferguson Center for the Arts, tickets are distributed to targeted communities through local municipalities and self-identified 501c3 organizations (such as churches, Boys & Girls Clubs, Social Services, schools). Over the past seven performance seasons, thousands of Hampton Roads residents have experienced the joy and wonder of live performance for the first time through Arts for All.
Performing arts is an expensive proposition, with ticket sales covering less than 60% of all operating expenses. We are fortunate that our community members have embraced us with their generosity to make up the difference. With your support, Arts for All can have a positive impact by reaching a larger portion of our community.
We hope you will consider making a contribution that will help us continue to create touchstone moments that inspire greatness in the children of our community for many generations to come.
