Promote the Performing Arts
The Carpenter Center is committed to providing distinctive and affordable performing arts experiences while remaining a fiscally-responsible organization.
Why your contribution is important
- Although the Carpenter Center is located on the CSULB campus, less than 18% of our budget comes from the university.
- Ticket sales from our live music, dance, conversation, and other performances cover only a portion of the cost of presenting world-class artists.
- All of our Arts for Life activities, from free community concerts to arts education for Long Beach schooldchildren, are made possible by the generosity of donors.
- Donations fund our capital improvement projects, providing improved theatre experiences for all.
