The remarkable philanthropy of many generous people in our community has helped the Adrienne Arsht Center become one of the world’s preeminent performing arts institutions. As the Center begins its 4th season, building an endowment has become increasingly important.  Ticket sales and other earned revenue alone do not cover all of the Center’s operating costs.  A strong endowment will help to relieve financial uncertainty by creating a perpetual stream of funding support that will be used to enhance operations, present innovative programming, and help maintain the world-class facility in top condition. Annual endowment payouts will allow Center management to plan more confidently, enabling it to continue to play its leadership role in the performing arts.   


In planning for the Center’s future, Miami-Dade County, the Center’s Board of Directors and Staff are committed to success. We, as a community, are most effective when all groups partner together, because both public and private sectors are equally important in creating a fiscally sound organization. Endowment funds used to create meaningful and engaging arts education and outreach initiatives that actively enlist the community ultimately result in an improvement in our community’s quality of life. Endowment gifts will also enable the Center to present and produce original, high-quality performing arts experiences that appeal to the diverse members of our community and have an impact on generations to come.   In order to meet the expectations and ever-changing needs of the community, our dynamic future needs strong and vital support.  

“Progress lies not in enhancing what is, but in advancing what will be.” Kahlil Gibran
