How Can I Help

Dear Friend of the Arts,

Research shows that theatre prepares us for life in the real world by:
  • developing and refining interpersonal skills
  • encouraging diversity
  • exploring various cultures
  • developing a sense of community and social responsibility
Working hand in hand with the Suncoast Performing Arts Foundation, we offer you our sincere commitment to raising public support essential to keeping the arts alive!

Contributions to Suncoast Performing Arts Foundation are vital to the Central Park Performing Arts Center (CPPAC) and its mission. As a nonprofit organization, SPAF relies on a variety of funding sources to help underwrite performances, educate young audiences and maintain our remarkable facility.

Although we have celebrated many box-office sales records, ticket sales and other earned income do not cover the cost of the CPPAC's overall operations. Only support from individuals and corporations like you can make this possible.

There are many ways to show your support.  Won't you consider making a tax-deductible gift today?  Please call us at 727-587-6751.
