About the Lancaster Performing Arts Center Foundation

Since its inception in 1989, the Lancaster Performing Arts Center Foundation has, through the generous contributions of their supporters, continued to fulfill their mission by providing for enhancements and quality upgrades for the Lancaster Performing Arts Center facility and performances. In doing so, the Lancaster Performing Arts Center has become the premier entertainment venue in the Antelope Valley.

The LPAC Foundation, in partnership with the community and the Lancaster Performing Arts Center, has also made it possible for thousands of students to experience, many for the first time, educational and inspirational dance, musical and theatrical performances at the Performing Arts Center and in-school outreaches, through the Arts for Youth program. Community Performing Arts Grants are also awarded annually by the Foundation to deserving organizations for their involvement in the performing arts.

In 2016, the Foundation launched the Performing Arts Scholarship program, annually awarding a $5,000 scholarship to a deserving local high school senior pursuing a college degree within the performing arts, including technical fields. The Scholarship program is an expression of the Foundation’s commitment to advance the dreams of talented young people by offering life changing opportunities toward the pursuit of higher education.

LPAC Foundation donors are valued partners in our ongoing effort to support the arts in our community. Even with the support of our ticket buying audience, the Lancaster Performing Arts Center relies on generous charitable contributions from our community.

This financial support is critical to sustain the artistic excellence of our performances, and to help serve the broadest possible audience with innovative education and community programs. From sponsoring events to purchasing student tickets and stage equipment, our fundraising efforts address a broad spectrum of needs while affording flexibility to donors. The Board of Directors oversees a multifaceted giving program for donors at all levels, including:

  • Arts for Youth Partnerships
  • Donor Wall
  • Name a Seat
  • Event Sponsorship

For specific information regarding how to participate in any of these opportunities, please visit the LPAC Foundation website or contact the LPAC Foundation office at (661) 723-6096,
