Support The Center
Be Part of Creating Art In Your Community

Ticket sales and tuition only cover a portion of our program and operating expenses. With your contribution, the Arvada Center can continue to offer award-winning theater, free gallery exhibitions, and unique, hands-on art experiences to be enjoyed year round.

Arts Day
An adventure in the arts to engage kids’ hands and expand their minds 

Each year, nearly 70,000 schoolchildren visit the Arvada Center and experience live professional theater and hands-on arts workshops, often for the first time. Your donation helps make the arts possible for thousands of low-income students and children with disabilities.

Arvada Center Dance
A unique and inspiring opportunity for dancers to learn and grow

From the progressive and disciplined structure of the Dance Academy to introductory dance classes for young children and ageless adults, the Arvada Center offers quality, professional training and mentorship for dancers of all ages and abilities.  Your support helps provide affordable options and scholarships for participants and families in need.

Front Range Youth Orchestras
Front Range Youth Symphony, Chamber Orchestra & Concert Strings

Created to enhance instrumental music programs in schools, the Arvada Center’s orchestral training programs are educational and performance-based, serving hundreds of  young musicians throughout the Denver metro and Front Range communities.  Your donation helps provide affordable opportunities for students to refine their talents in music.

Galleries at the Center
Help keep our galleries free and open to the public seven days a week!

Since 1976, the Arvada Center’s fine art galleries have provided a learning laboratory for schoolchildren, a gathering place for community organizations and an inspiring environment for artists and art lovers – all free of charge. With your donation, we can continue to keep our galleries free and open to the public seven days a week!

Honor the "stars" in your life! Name-A-Seat.

Celebrate a special occasion or honor a loved one with a personalized seat plaque in the Arvada Center's Main Stage Theater. Your gift of $300 is not only 100% tax-deductible, your special message will be noticed and enjoyed by our audiences for many more years to come.

  • Celebrate a special occasion or milestone
  • Honor your family and friends
  • Memorialize a loved one
  • Acknowledge your business or social club

Please note: Seat plaques may contain up to three lines, with approx. 22 characters per line.
Due to many patrons who share our seats, we are unable to guarantee the location of your personalized seat.

Classroom Improvements

Enhance the quality of your education experience!

The Arvada Center is about to renovate our outdated darkroom into a multimedia lab and convert several classrooms to “smart classrooms” with computers, specialized software, and audio/visual capabilities. Additional upgrades include new ceramics kilns, an expanded kiln yard, and a new dance floor.

The total cost of this project is $400,000. To date, we have raised $290,693 from several donors and foundations, but we need your help to close the gap. Included in the funds already raise are two challenge grants totaling $50,000. In order to receive this money, we must raise the remaining $109,307 by October 31, 2015.
