• Naming Opportunities at St. Catharines’ New Performing Arts Centre

    The first phase of St. Catharines’ New Performing Arts Centre fundraiser has been on for twenty-two months, collecting a total of $2.88 million. The New Performing Arts Centre looks to glean $5 million to put towards construction costs, a large portion of which the City covers with innovation funding.

    Originally, the fundraiser was set to end Dec. 31st, 2014. However, due to delays last year, the campaign will continue forward until the site opens in fall 2015. Having passed the halfway milestone, St. Catharines’ New Performing Arts Centre naming opportunities are limited: only one of four venues remains untitled, along with the building itself. Donations of $500,000 and $3 million would settle both respectively.

    But donors need not pledge thousands to claim a stake in the theatre. The fundraiser will soon sell seat names at $500. For those inclined to spend more, dressing rooms, lobbies and other social spaces will sell upwards of $25,000, while a plague in the main lobby runs closer to $10,000.  Should all sponsorship opportunities close, the campaign will yield $7.6 million.
