Due to the extraordinary generosity of our supporters, we’re so happy to have exceeded our initial Relief & Response Fund goal. To everyone who contributed to this campaign: thank you! Your incredible generosity is helping SPA to:

  • Weather this crisis, the most challenging event in our organization’s history
  • Impact our community through innovative new programs
  • Remain at the ready to present in-person performances when it is safe to do so

There is still so much work to be done, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you for helping us move Arts Forward.

You can support these efforts and Society for the Performing Arts’ ongoing recovery by making a gift today:

Every donation matters:
