The Inner Circle is designed for individuals and families who make annual financial contributions to Cal Poly Arts. Gifts to the Inner Circle support professional performing arts events in our community and are 100% tax-deductible.
Ticket sales cover only 65% of the cost of bringing world-class artists for you to experience and enjoy right here on the Central Coast. The remainder of our income must come from generous contributions from individuals and businesses.
Cal Poly Arts must raise $400,000 from Inner Circle gifts to balance our 2014-15 budget.
There are several opportunities for you to support the work we do. See below for an overview of donor benefits. Call our Administrative Office at 805/756-6383 for complete contribution information. (Donation functions listed at bottom)
