MIX is a collective of dynamic and creative young leaders who love life in Lynchburg and are committed to building a community of substance around art and relationships. MIX donors meet throughout the year at special gatherings and events and help financially support the Academy’s community outreach programs and dynamic programming.
MIX donations support the Academy’s community outreach programs. These programs enrich lives, improve education, and stimulate our economy. Learn more about the community outreach programs here: https://academycenter.org/community-outreach/
Why Join MIX?
Art stimulates ideas, conversation and thought. We want to build a community around this. We feel that a group built around the engagement of art and ideas will build stronger and more meaningful connections. This is not a group built around self-advancement or professional connections but a group invested in building a stronger and more fulfilling community.
We believe in the power of the arts and we believe in the importance of philanthropy. A strong community has both. Your support of the Academy, through your donation, helps the Academy make the arts accessible to everyone in our community despite economic barriers through affordable ticketing options, increased scholarship gifts, and allows the Academy to host free and open cultural activities throughout the year.

Why the Academy?
The Academy will be the cultural center of our city as we move forward. This group is our future and this group is an influence on what the Academy produces, provides and does for our community.
What does “young” mean?
We think of a young leader as someone who is energized and engaged in the future of our community. You choose to define yourself this way.
