Dynamic leaders, loyal supporters and courageous visionaries describe the Board members of Chandler Cultural Foundation.

Incorporated in 1989, Chandler Cultural Foundation is a not-for-profit organization responsible for both promoting and operating Chandler Center for the Arts.

Considered one of the finest performing arts venues in the Southwest, Chandler Center for the Arts is an elegant, multi-use facility jointly owned by the City of Chandler and the Chandler Unified School District. Each year dozens of local, national and international artists perform on the Center’s three stages. Additionally, hundreds of high school and grade school programs are hosted during the school year.

To ensure the smooth and profitable operation of such a busy performing arts center, the members of Chandler Cultural Foundation Board are assigned the task of:

  1. Reviewing and approving proposed management policies
  2. Reviewing and approving the annual operating budget
  3. Managing a Philanthropic Endowment
  4. Developing and coordinating fundraising programs to support the Center
  5. Reviewing and approving proposed programs and visual art exhibits at the Center

Fundraising Activities

As the fundraising arm of Chandler Center for the Arts, the Foundation raises money to support artistic and educational programs and for an endowment fund that creates long-term sustainability for the Center.

Board members are encouraged to make personal contributions to the endowment fund. This personal gift is not only a show of support for the Center but it also helps the Foundation obtain philanthropic gifts when grants are submitted to local and regional funding sources.
