Support

Thank you for your interest in supporting the mission of The Center for the Arts & Sciences and our programs! The Center relies on both financial support of individuals and organizations and the support of volunteers willing to offer their time and expertise to enrich the lives of those seeking out arts and science experiences.

One of the most special features of The Center is the many ways volunteers and donors can make a significant impact on our community. You can customize your dollars and your time to go to the program that means the most to you. You will find a description and donation portal for each of our programs as well as methods of supporting the operations of The Center, itself. You may also convert any donation into a tribute or memorial simply by following the instructions of the online form that will appear when you click a link below.

If you are looking for ways to volunteer at The Center, simply review the volunteer opportunities on the ‘Volunteer’ tab. If you wish for our Volunteer Coordinator to contact you, simply complete the online form found under the Volunteer Interest Form tab. We will work to find the perfect fit for you! If you would prefer to speak with a staff member over the phone, please call us at (979) 265-7661 during normal business hours.
