Opening Nights Performing Arts Series Endowment

The purpose of the Opening Nights Performing Arts Series Endowment is to create an unrestricted endowed fund to support world-class artistic endeavors of the annual Opening Nights Performing Arts series. Disbursements from this fund will be made to commission new works, subsidize artistic fees, assist in operating costs, and any other expense related to the day-to-day operations of Opening Nights.

Opening Nights Student Access to the Performing Arts Endowment

Opening Nights believes that the live performing arts are fundamental to the academic mission of a great public university and essential to the soul of our community. Because of this, Opening Nights offers discounted ticket options for students at Florida State University and our community. In order to underwrite student tickets, Opening Nights must subsidize $20 to $100 per ticket. By sponsoring this program, you assist in offsetting the subsidy Opening Nights provides, keeping ticket prices for students affordable.

Note: Contributions towards the opening nights Performing arts endowment begin at $25,000 and up.
