The Young Auditorium is committed to its mission of providing world-class arts and entertainment opportunities to the community - but we cannot fulfill our mission without your help. 

The construction of the auditorium in 1993 was possible due to the dedication and financial contribution of individuals and businesses who believed in the benefits of the arts. It is this enduring commitment to the arts from our Members that allows the Young Auditorium to continue its excellence in artistic programming. When you become a Member through your tax-deductible contribution, you and your family will also receive benefits that allow you unique access to artistic excellence.

Financial Need

Funding graphTicket Revenue accounts for only 50% of our budget. The remaining amount has to be raised from government and private sources. The financial contribution of individuals has always played a critical role in the programming.

Value & Community

Member Support ensures that high quality programming continues to be available at an affordable price. Tickets are often 10-20% less than in nearby cities - plus the auditorium provides a convenient and intimate venue for experiencing performances.

Arts education remains a focus of our mission. Every season an average of 22,000 K-12 students attend a cultural or artistic performance at the Young Auditorium. Guarantee that the arts will continue to be a part of every child's education.
