Giving Day

Giving Day is April 5, 2018. 

For just 24 hours, from midnight through 11:59 p.m. ET on April 5, everyone in the Mason community is invited to make their mark by giving. In the spirit of crowdfunding, the Center for the Arts is participating in hopes of funding an important project: modernizing the Monson Grand Tier. Gifts of any size make a difference.  

Modernize the Monson Grand Tier

Help us enhance your experience at the Center for the Arts by modernizing the Monson Grand Tier. Your gift will aid in the purchase of a new projector, updated lighting fixtures, and audio equipment.The Center for the Arts offers a Pre-Performance Discussion before nearly every Great Performances at Mason event on the Monson Grand Tier (formerly Grand Tier III). These talks, led by artists and/or local experts, offer insight into the upcoming performance and are free to all ticket holders. In addition, many small events, receptions, and master classes are held in this space. Enhance the arts education experiences brought to the community through the Center for the Arts!

  • The first $500 given to the account will be matched dollar for dollar by an anonymous member of the Friends of the Center for the Arts.
  • Louis Delair will give $400 if the 40 gift goal is reached before midnight.
  • An anonymous member of the Friends of the Center for the Arts will give $250 if 10 gifts are made during the hour of 12 p.m.-1 p.m.
