Share your love of the arts
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!
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.
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.
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.
Ways to Contribute
As a UFPA Affiliate Member, you’ll help bring world-class programming to the heart of Florida. To show our appreciation, we offer a variety of benefits to enhance your performing arts experience like priority handling of UFPA preseason ticket orders, priority seating, and advance notice of added performances throughout the season. Starting at just $100 ($25 for students), there’s a level for everyone.
Performance Sponsorships allow local businesses or individuals the opportunity to help underwrite the UFPA-presented production of their choice. Sponsorships provide a way for businesses to give back to the community and receive in return marketing, tickets to the performance, and other exclusive benefits.
Endowments & Bequests
Investing today ensures the arts for tomorrow; endowments and bequests provide a future for UFPA. These unique, sustaining gifts enable UFPA to continue to bring artists from around the globe to our community and make this a culturally vibrant place to live and visit.
Make a Contribution to Our General Operating Fund
Thousands of students and kids begin their artistic journey with UFPA. Help share your love of the arts with others today. Your contribution to our general operating fund helps support everything UFPA does to build the artists of tomorrow.
Contribute to Education & Outreach Programs
You can also direct a general contribution to one of UFPA’s Education Outreach programs. We believe the arts have no boundaries. Through programs like AIM Together (in partnership with UF Health Arts in Medicine), the Partners Program, Masterclasses, and School Day Performances, you can share the arts with underserved populations, bring the arts into healthcare, or build a new generation of artists.
Volunteering is another great way to show your support for UFPA.
