We Need Your Support
The UGA Performing Arts Center relies on a combination of public, private, and corporate financial support to sustain our operations and to produce hundreds of events each season. State funding only goes so far, and we must raise additional funds to cover the expenses related to our world-class professional presenting program.
Below you’ll see ways you can help us fulfill our mission of making first-rate concerts and theatrical events and educational experiences available to patrons of all ages in Athens-Clarke County and the surrounding area. Your support is critical to our success, and no gift is too small.
