Your support shows your commitment to the arts and to your community.

Lake Michigan College Mendel Center contributors understand that ticket sales alone do not make each season a success. Your gift and ticket purchases help ensure that the recovery of professional performing arts in southwest Michigan continues. There are three ways to direct your annual support of the Mendel Center.

General Operating Fund

Gifts to the General Operating Fund support programming, technical services, and other day-to-day expenses necessary to present high quality, nationally touring performances and speakers.

   One-time Gift   

Arts Factor

Arts Factor increases access to Mendel Center events for underserved community members. We work with local service organizations to identify young people, families, seniors, and individuals with differing abilities who can benefit from educationally and socially enriching activities.
