More Notes About Giving

University of Florida Performing Arts would not be possible without the generous support of individuals and business from our community. Find out 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. Performers, artists’ management and out-of-town production and technical crew utilize more than 1,500 room nights in local hotels throughout the season. 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.

Healing Through the Arts

The AIM Together program offers healing through the arts for patients and families by bringing world-class artists into health care settings with Shands HealthCare.

Accessibility of the Arts

UFPA believes the arts have no boundaries. The Performing Arts Partners program provides tickets to underserved populations who may not otherwise have access to cultural opportunities.
