Support the Collins Center

Play Your Part

No direct federal or state appropriations support performances or outreach programs. $200,000 must be raised from private individuals, corporations, and foundations each year to support the programs and performances at the Center. Friends become partners—investors in the performing arts—enriching their lives and the lives of the community. As an CCA Friend, you reach out and make a difference in many ways:

  • You underwrite live performances for school children from all over Maine.
  • You help provide the very best performances from around the world… performers and companies who bring their vision, artistic talent, and unique perspectives to Maine.
  • You help bridge the gap between the actual cost of presenting an event and the 60% covered by ticket sales.
  • You provide opportunities for community and visiting artists to develop new works, and to rehearse and perform on the CCA stage.
  • You help maintain a first-rate theatre so the curtain goes up, night after night.
  • You help bring joy and meaning into the lives of people in our community who otherwise might not experience live performances.
