The Need Now
The Mann Center for the Performing Arts is a non-profit organization that relies on a combination of earned revenue from ticket, concession, and parking sales as well as rentals, public funding, and the generous contributions of individual, corporate, and foundation donors. With the loss of the traditional 2020 concert season, the Mann is working to close a $2.5 million gap for the year. While this is not an insurmountable challenge, it is one we must address now.
To help, we have launched the Let the Music Play Resiliency Fund for the Mann: a historic, emergency fund to support the Mann’s annual fund and continued community engagement and education programming that immediately went virtual at the outset of the pandemic’s arrival in the greater Philadelphia area. Already, $1.8 million in contributions toward our $2.5 million goal have been identified.
Your support will help us continue operations to ensure that the shows can go on when we come back together next summer. But more than that, your support now will allow our Education & Community Engagement team to continue the vital, virtual programming they are offering for children and their families in the region and beyond.
Be sure to check out our Mann Music Room to see how we are virtually connecting audiences and performers, from home to home. We are so thankful for your continued patronage and support of the Mann!
