Individual Giving

Did you know that last year in the United States, more than 80% of charitable giving came from individuals? That’s people just like you, friends of NJPAC, who care about making a difference.

It’s a simple fact that NJPAC wouldn’t be NJPAC if it weren’t for over two decades of extraordinary generosity and dedicated giving.

There are so many different reasons people support NJPAC. It’s a deeply personal thing. Here are just a few:

  • Many care about our arts education programs, the largest and most in-depth in the state. Did you know that a contribution to NJPAC can make possible intensive training in the arts for young people in Newark and around the state? Your gift can also support in-school residencies with talented teaching artists, as well as great performances at NJPAC that ignite curiosity and spark learning. Gifts to support arts education at NJPAC impact the lives of more than 60,000 children and teens, educators and families every year.
  • Some want to support free community events that make the Arts Center accessible to everyone. Our free outdoor concert series, Sounds of the City, brings thousands of visitors to NJPAC’s plaza every summer.
  • And others just want to have a part in enriching the cultural life and vitality of Newark and New Jersey. The arts and entertainment community in New Jersey has grown by leaps and bounds since NJPAC first opened its doors, so many have said they no longer feel the need to go into Manhattan for great orchestra, dance,  cabaret, pop, jazz or family programming. They have all they need on this side of the Hudson. Your support of NJPAC can help grow and expand great programming like this.

There are a variety of ways and levels you can help. For more information on all of these, check out our pages on Membership, the Vanguard, Planned Giving and Other ways to Give.
