Cornerstone Society

Cornerstone Society

A generous gift to the Great Lakes Center for the Arts endowment fund is an investment in the future of the performing arts and arts education in Northern Michigan. Your support will enable the Center to sustain its mission to inspire, entertain, educate, and serve all in Northern Michigan year-round by presenting exceptional experiences across the full spectrum of the performing arts and offering impactful educational opportunities.   

Seat Campaign

One exciting way to make an endowment gift is through the Center’s Seat Campaign. Donors can name a seat in our state-of-the-art theater. Each seat plaque may be inscribed with a personal message. The special opportunity is first come, first served, and the number of seats remaining is limited.  

If you are interested in naming a seat for yourself or in honor/memory of someone else or would like more information regarding the endowment campaign, please contact:
