Individual Giving

Giving a gift to the Newman Center helps include world-renowned artists on our NCPA programming. It also supports our education and community engagement projects, helping transform lives through the power of the performing arts.

Gifts of all sizes are a valuable investment. 

Give


Support an NCPA show 

Supporting an NCPA show helps keep the caliber of our season high. Ticket sales alone don’t cover the fees of our esteemed artists and your support is the difference in being able to bring those artists to perform at the Newman Center.

Your investment also allows us to offer robust and diverse programming that encompasses a range of genres. 


Support our Engagement Programming

The mission of NCPA is to lift up diverse communities, address social and other important issues, as well as entertain and uphold the most beautiful and meaningful art and performances.

Our goal is to provide all of our education programming at no cost to the community.

That’s why 100% of support goes directly to education and arts programming. This offers access to acclaimed artists and outstanding educational experiences, specifically focusing on underserved populations in Colorado. 


Your Money Makes an Impact 

Here are some of the ways your money directly supports the educational projects.  

$5 covers cost of one student to attend to student matinee performance. 

$100 covers a bus of 25 students to attend an education program. 

$1000 covers the cost of a community workshop or masterclass. 

$5000 would cover the cost of adding another Musical Explorers culmination concert, providing capacity to serve another 1000 students.
