Our Promise for the Future

The Mann Center for the Performing Arts, a non-profit organization, has successfully taken on the challenge of raising $43.5 million to continue improvements to its main pavilion and campus, establish an endowment for education, and invest in programming that is exciting and innovative to all those in our community.

Now we are asking you to get involved so you can be a part of the Mann’s legacy and a permanent part of our story. Great names should be etched in stone. Your name should be one of them.

For over forty years, we’ve been bringing the best names to the Mann.
