OUR NONPROFIT MISSION
“CHALLENGE, STIMULATE, ENTERTAIN”
The mission of The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts is to provide artistically diverse performances of the highest quality. The Center serves Kentucky through education and initiatives which expand and diversify audiences while enhancing their understanding, appreciation and support for the arts. The Center strives to challenge, stimulate, and entertain while operating in a fiscally responsible manner and acting as an economic and cultural catalyst for the Commonwealth.
OUR FINANCIAL REALITY
Every gift counts! The Kentucky Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that relies on the generosity of donors and the community to support our mission. All contributions are used to support Kentucky Center presentations, arts education programs and Access Services.
The Kentucky Center is not a member agency of the Fund for the Arts, although we respect its mission. The Kentucky Center receives an annual appropriation from the Commonwealth of Kentucky which amounts to less than 5% of our annual operating budget.
