Support / Individual Giving

Individual Giving

Annual & major gifts are critical to our success.

There are many ways an individual can give to Carolina Performing Arts:

Annual Giving

Annual gifts to Carolina Performing Arts are the most important way to support the inspiring arts experiences we all enjoy. We have three annual giving groups from which you can choose: Friends of Carolina Performing Arts, for gifts of any amount up to $10,000; David Lowry Swain Society for gifts of $10,000 and above; and the Student Ticket Angel Fund, which helps make possible our $10 student ticket program for Carolina students.

Each giving group has benefits that will enhance your arts experiences at Memorial Hall and our other venues. These benefits can be waived if you wish to receive the full amount of your gift as a charitable deduction.

Major Gifts

Major gifts empower Carolina Performing Arts to continue the tradition of bold, imaginative programming, new educational and community outreach programs, commissions for new works, and our ability to attract the very best performers in the world, season after season.

Major gifts ($25,000+) may be used for establishing a new endowment or support expendable needs and can be paid over time, typically three to five years.

Gift planning offers many excellent opportunities to increase the impact of your philanthropy.

Previous major gifts have supported the renovation of Memorial Hall, established the first endowment to support classical music programming, and made possible the performances of the Bolshoi Ballet in 2009 and the season-long celebration The Rite of Spring at 100 during the 12/13 season.
