Support Arts for Life Programming

The generosity of our donors makes all of our Arts for Life activities possible, from low-cost and no-cost community concerts, to arts education for Long Beach schoolchildren and master classes for CSULB students.

Make a difference

Please join us in recognizing the importance of arts education through a donation to our Arts for Life initiative.


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.
  • Donations fund our capital improvement projects, providing improved theatre experiences for all.

Craft Your Legacy

Touch the lives of thousands in our arts community through a generous gift, bequest, grant or other contribution to the Carpenter Center in support of our arts activities.
