Support the State Theatre!

On May 11th – 12th, The State Theatre will be participating in Centre Gives, a 36-hour online giving event for non-profits making a difference in Centre County. The State Theatre is a nonprofit performing arts center committed to using our passion for performance, creativity, and inclusivity to support our community through the performing arts. 

Starting at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, May 11th and ending at 9 p.m. on Wednesday May 12th, anyone can give a gift to the State Theatre through Centre Gives at this secure link.  You can also call Centre Gives directly to donate at (814) 237-6229.  

How Can You Help?

Tell all your friends about Centre Gives and ask them to make a gift to the State Theatre to support the arts in our community!

Last year Centre Gives lowered the minimum donation amount to $10; we are excited that this change will remain in place!

Why support us during Centre Gives?

Centre Gives is a unique opportunity for non-profit organizations in Centre County to get the most out of their fundraising efforts.  At the end of the 36-hour event, Centre Foundation grants organizations a percentage of the $300,000 stretch pool.  So, for each donation we receive, we can get a larger percentage of the stretch pool funds.

All donations, small or large, are important to our future success, and Centre Gives provides you a way to make your contribution even more meaningful.  Throughout the event, Centre Gives hosts smaller challenges for participating organizations where additional prizes will be awarded. 

How does the State Theatre use donations made through Centre Gives?

We are excited to move into the first phase of our reopening, but the reality is that The State Theatre will be one of the last types of organizations permitted to return to full operating capacity, whenever that may be.  

The State Theatre is hard at work to reopen and the support of our community remains vital to our success.  All donations will go to provide ongoing support to The State Theatre as we prepare for a full-reopening.
