Chandler Center for the Arts interior pan

Your contribution sustains a spectacular array of artistic and public service programs that include education and outreach performances and activities that touch the lives of many in our community.

You Help Close The Gap

While we are a City of Chandler and Chandler Unified School District building, our artistic and outreach programs are privately supported. The Chandler Center for the Arts receives no direct appropriations for artistic programming. Our appropriations must be applied only to the maintenance and operation of the actual building. Ticket sales and other earned income cover only part of our programming expenses, which means we must rely on donations in order to deliver quality arts programs at an affordable cost to the public.

Membership has its rewards!

May I designate how I want my contribution to be used?

Yes! Many individuals and businesses want to make certain that their contributions are earmarked for performance programs of special interest to them.

  • Performance Programs (Dance, Plays, Concerts etc...)
  • Special Fundraising Events (3 Evenings for the Arts, Eat Your Art Out Chandler)
  • Endowment Fund
  • Education & Outreach (Theatre Kidz, Camp Kidz, Vision Kidz, Youth Advisory Council)
  • Planned Giving

Sponsor Benefits

Following are some of the areas that need support, both on an annual basis, and through endowed funds:

Sponsor A Live Performance 

Many individuals and foundations want to make certain that their contributions are earmarked for performance programs of special interest to them (Jazz, Dance, Broadway). Our development department can create a customized sponsorship to help you achieve your individual or corporate-giving goals.

Sponsor An Educational & Outreach Program

Individuals and foundations who share the Chandler Center for the Arts commitments to bringing the highest caliber performing arts to families and children, and who value the important role that the arts play in the education of young people, may consider support for one of several Chandler Center for the Arts programs that offer unique experiences for children, families and educators.

Endowment Gifts

An endowment fund is a permanently restricted net asset, the principal of which is protected and the interest from which may be spent and is controlled by either the donor’s restrictions or the organization’s governing board. Endowments strengthen an organization’s sustainability and are the key to ensuring long-term stability.
