Donate Here

Every year, the Academy thrives with strong donor support. Your gifts are critical for our innovative workshops, educational programming, and other special projects that help support and inspire our community.

As an Academy Member, your gift goes far beyond bridging the gap between budgetary expenses and revenue generated from ticket sales, which only covers approximately half of the funds involved in operating our theaters, classroom spaces, and galleries. Your donations are transformative and help sustain initiatives like Academy in Motion, and other programs that help create life-changing experiences for people of all ages in our region.


There’s never been a more exciting time to support the Academy. Whether you’re renewing your membership or making your first ever gift to ACOA–we want you to be a part of it all

Not only will your gift directly support our mission, but as a current member you’ll receive exclusive benefits that enhance your experience at the Academy. All members receive advance notice of events, access to a dedicated members line at our Delta Star Concessions with complimentary snacks, and more. Level 1 Membership starts at just $75 (or $6.25 monthly) and we hope to add your name to our list of valued supporters in 2024.
