Individual Giving: Leadership Gifts

Levels & Benefits

Cal Performances’ Leadership donors make it possible to bring the world’s leading artists and most transformative works to Bay Area audiences, as well as widen access to music, dance and theater in the region.

Sharing in our vision for the arts, Leadership donors invest in our community through strategic support of Artistic Programs and Initiatives, Education and Community Programs, and new programming that explores the issues facing the future of performing arts organizations.

While taking pride in the impact of your investment, you will also enjoy many opportunities throughout the year to experience the programs you fund, meet the artists, hear from artistic leadership and front-line staff, and connect with fellow patrons.
