The State Theatre needs your help to purchase a new Digital Projection System!

On May 8th – 9th, 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 8 a.m. on Wednesday, May 8th and ending at 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 9th, 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.  

All donations made to Centre Gives will be directed to our Projection Campaign. The State Theatre cannot provide membership benefits for any Centre Gives donations due to campaign and IRS regulations.

If you are interested in purchasing or renewing your State Theatre membership, Opera Buff membership, or Reel Fans membership, please contact us directly at 814.272.0606.  Thank you for understanding and your support.

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. 

What is Centre Gives?

This exciting community giving event is hosted by Centre Foundation and supported by our community impact funds and partnerships with local businesses.
