Support PPAC

Every dollar donated to PPAC’s Annual Fund is used to support the Theatre’s Community Outreach Initiative, which gives young audiences and emerging artists the chance to experience the wonder of live theater at no or low-cost through such programs as ARTS Scholarships, The Bank of America Arts Showcase, Big Dreams Begin With Broadway (seats for Big Brothers Big Sister of the Ocean State), From Books To Broadway, Seats for Service Members and Wonders of Wurlitzer.

Although PPAC is a non-profit organization which seeks sponsors and donors, there is an ongoing commitment to give back to the community via these programs. Your generous gift will enable you to play a starring role in the further development and continue success of what has become a tradition of excellence that is PPAC’s Community Outreach Initiative.

Report To The Community

The Providence Performing Arts Center continues to take pride in our ability to make this magnificent building accessible to the entire community it serves. The programs of our Community Outreach Initiative make that accessibility possible.

A myriad of supporters, tireless volunteers, individual donors, private foundations, public corporations and our local, state, and federal governments have joined PPAC in this undertaking . Their support has enabled PPAC to build future audiences by offering programs that bring the community into the Theatre for unique theatrical experiences. To merely say thank you seems somehow inadequate, which brings us to the book you are about to download.

Ongoing support of the Theatre's Annual Fund and Annual Gala ensure the legacy of this significant historical landmark for the next generation. PPAC hopes this Report to the Community will enlighten you about the PPAC that exists beyond the spotlights of our Broadway shows.
