The Center has been the place to enjoy creativity, conversation, and celebration since 1994. For nearly 25 years, the Center has been the cultural hub of North County, bringing people together to enjoy our programs, events, and resources that benefit over 286,000 annually. And as we prepare for our 25th anniversary season next year, we are dedicated to making arts accessible for everyone in our community.
Our events and programs are only possible with community support but we also want to reach more youth, families, and seniors. And thanks to a generous challenge grant from the David T. and Dorris E. Staples Foundation, we can connect even more members of our community to the transformational power of the arts. All new or increased donations received by December 31, 2018 will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $20,000! Your tax-deductible year-end gift also helps to bring our arts education programs into local schools, 30+ events to our theaters with our Performing Arts Season, and four exhibitions annually to our Museum.
We believe that the arts not only enhance our everyday lives, they help define a culture. We put aside differences and come together as we enjoy something beautiful, intriguing, or up-lifting. Your support today will inspire young artists, bring families together at our Museum, and let seniors reminisce through music at our free summer concerts.
