Support the Arts

The arts need your help, and here at Staller Center, you can invest in various types of projects.  Did you know that outside of NYS allocated funding, nearly 70% of support for Staller Center for the Arts comes directly from private donations through the generosity of Corporations, Individuals and Foundations.  Funds raised are directly impacting the caliber of performers we are able to bring in, keep ticket prices affordable, and benefit our amazing arts and education outreach to the Long Island community.

Annual Gifts via Friends of Staller

Giving to the Friends of Staller Center is a great way to make an annual gift to support the arts. The Friends of Staller are a remarkable group of people who have invested in the future of the Center. With special benefits such as tickets to various shows and films, access to the Founder’s Room, listing proudly displayed in the Staller Center playbill, and much more.

Major Gifts

In 1988, the Staller Family gave us a transformational gift to name the Staller Center in honor of Max & Mary Staller. It doesn’t take your typical philanthropist to make a major impact gift at the Staller Center, it just takes passion, dedication and a bit of creativity.

Planned Gifts
