Leadership Circle

As a patron of the arts, you belong to an exceptional group of people – people who understand the difference an individual can make. Your Leadership Circle gift helps us bring people together at hundreds of arts events each year, enhancing our community and celebrating our shared love of the arts.

Your generous support:

  • Makes it possible to present over 100 concerts each year, featuring national artists and rising stars from throughout the U.S.
  • Helps present over 200 children's theater classes, workshops and family concerts each year introducing young people to the arts and developing creative skills
  • Sustains the TCAN Players, a decorated community theater group presenting three excellent productions each year with local cast and crew
  • Supports a regular series of classical music concerts featuring outstanding artists from the area's finest universities and chamber music institutions
  • Provides participation opportunities for local artists in programs such as Rock Off Main Street, Folk Open Mic, and Summer Street Art Gallery
  • Allows us to assist schools and other local nonprofit organizations by hosting music recitals, concerts, and fund raising events that support their missions
  • Provides the assistance we need to keep arts events affordable for the entire community                                                  

Your annual leadership gift is vital to our mission and financial well-being. Like most arts organizations, TCAN's arts programs are privately supported. Ticket sales and other earned income cover only 60% of our operating expenses, and we receive less than $1,000 each year from Federal and State grants to underwrite programs and operations. This means that we must raise over $350,000 annually to deliver the kind of excellence on the stage and in our many programs that you have come to expect. Your gift helps us maintain this quality and variety in arts programming.                                                        

Your gift is important – and providing special benefits is our way of saying "thank you" for your generous support. TCAN is pleased to recognize your Leadership Circle gift of $1,000 or more with the complete benefits of TCAN membership. Additional program benefits for Leadership Circle members are designed to enhance your relationship with TCAN in ways that will be useful and meaningful to you.
