Support UFPA

University of Florida Performing Arts would neither be able to host today’s talented artists nor build those of tomorrow without the generous support of individuals and businesses from our community. Here’s how your support impacts UFPA, the community, and you!

Priceless Experience

More than just entertainment, a live performance has the power to transform the audience. Commissioning and mounting new works allow innovative artists to create and share a new experience with your community.

Broadening Horizons

The greatest value of the arts is the ability to build bridges across generations and cultures. You have the opportunity to enrich your life, both personally and professionally, by experiencing the impact of arts in your community.

Economic Impact

UFPA enriches Alachua County both culturally and financially. Throughout the season, local hotels book more than 1,500 rooms for performers, their management, production crews and technical staff. On average, 19 percent of our audience resides outside of Alachua County, resulting in more than $1 million of visitor impact. Local patrons also fuel the economy by utilizing businesses and restaurants prior to and/or after performances.

Arts for Future Generations

Your investment today inspires tomorrow’s artists. Thousands of students experience the magic of the arts during free School-Day Performances. Master Classes and residencies offer students the opportunity to work one-on-one with artists.
