WHY DONATE?

The Norton Center is your center for the arts. Ticket sales go a long way to support the performances that appear on our stages each season but, as with all non‐profit arts organizations, the Norton Center must rely upon the active involvement of our community to lend financial support. Tax-deductible gifts from donors allow the Norton Center to offer a diverse array of live, engaging performances, expand our professional programs for young audiences and provide workshops, lecture/demonstrations and residency programs with visiting artists as our service to cultural engagement and learning. Please contact the Norton Center directly to discuss making a difference today!
