Your gift helps us make sure the Straz Center continues to serve as Tampa Bay’s cultural heartbeat, because ticket sales only cover part of our costs.
We depend on support from individuals, businesses, foundations and public agencies to help us raise more than $7 million to fill the gap -- every year.
• lifts the curtains for more than 1,400 world-class performances each year,
• provides a home for outstanding training in music, dance and theater arts,
• brings the transformative power of arts education to low-income schools and agencies,
• gives kids in need the chance to achieve their dreams through scholarships,
• welcomes people of all abilities to share the performing arts, and
• keeps ticket prices affordable, and creative learning within reach of everyone.
None of these things would be possible without the generous and thoughtful support of donors. Help us fulfill our mission by making your gift today.
