Contribute

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

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.

Monthly Gift   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.

Monthly Gift   One-time Gift 


Premiere Partners

A permanent, self-sustaining source of funding, donations to the endowment are used for the purpose of supporting the activities of The Mendel Center and enhancing the patron experience. Each year, a portion of the endowment’ interest earnings is paid out to support The Mendel Center. Earnings in excess of this distribution are used to build the endowment’s market value.

Monthly Gift   One-time Gift
