Academy Membership is directly linked to the success of the Academy Center of the Arts, and is the channel through which we can provide community members – donors, ticket buyers, students, parents, families, and local businesses – a variety of arts and cultural opportunities.
As a nonprofit organization dedicated to the greater good, the Academy Center of the Arts is reliant on support from people like you. Many are surprised to learn that ticket sales only cover half of the cost to operate our Historic Theatre, Warehouse Theatre, classroom spaces, and galleries.
When you become an Academy Member, you enjoy perks and privileges that accompany the satisfaction in knowing that your generosity is making a lasting impact on the community.
Become an Academy Member today and support the arts in your community!
