Great institutions are built on great endowments, and a growing endowment for the Straz Center allows it to stretch artistically, enhance its educational programs, seize opportunities and plan for the future.
Endowment funds work alongside operating funds to address the current and long-term needs of Straz Center programs. While annual gifts help cover the annual costs of presenting world-class performances and education experiences, endowment gifts are invested to earn interest. The Straz Center receives a fraction of the fund’s value annually, providing additional and steady income that helps sustain programs and support new initiatives. Endowment growth ensures a larger income stream in future years.
You can help guarantee the Straz Center’s future by making an endowment gift. In appreciation, the Straz Center provides recognition opportunities such as named endowed funds and endowed seats.
