Why support ARTS NC STATE?
ARTS NC STATE only receives 18% of its annual budget from state appropriations. While we receive significant support from ticket sales and student fees, we rely upon the generosity of our donors to fulfill the expenses of our programs. Your contribution will help ensure that all NC State students have the opportunity to participate in the arts.


Because of our donors, NC State students…

Practice on a Steinway Grand.

Fire pottery in professional-grade kilns.

Dance at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC. …and much more!


How you can help…
Gregg Museum Campaign

In 2015-2016, the Gregg Museum will open at the site of the historic Chancellor’s residence on Hillsborough Street. Be a part of transforming the Gregg into one Triangle’s most-visited museums.


Friends of the Gregg

The Gregg Museum benefits from a strong donor base known as the Friends of the Gregg. These contributors choose to benefit the Gregg exclusively.


Thompson Hall Theatre Chair Campaign

We invite you to play a central and perpetual role in the renovated Thompson Hall by naming a chair in
either the Titmus Theatre or Kennedy-McIlwee Studio Theatre. Your chair will feature a plaque on the armrest with your name(s) or any other dedication you wish to make. Brochure and donor form>
