Support Your Regional Arts Center


TJ.jpgThroughout the Ramsdell's history, gifts from friends like you have been vital to our becoming the center for creative and performing arts in our community. Today your support remains more important than ever. On average, arts centers depend on donations for over 40% of their income. Whether you make a financial contribution, sponsor programming, advertise with us or volunteer your time and expertise, you help ensure access to the great life experiences that make the Ramsdell an integral part of our community. Business leaders can partner with arts, here's eight reasons why you should consider doing it today!

Your donation helps:

  • Underwrite operating costs to keep rental rates low for area not for profit arts organizations like the Manistee Civic Players, a key institution of the Ramsdell.
  • Fund MET Opera Live! Broadcasts and "At the Ramsdell" performing arts and entertainment programming.
  • Purchase needed equipment that includes an electric "genie" lift, portable bars and new stage curtains.
  • Finish and maintain the historic restoration; current projects include sub-stage dressing rooms, ticket office and updating the exterior look.
  • Build an endowment to support the Ramsdell for generations to come.

You can make a gift online at through MyNorth Tickets on the Ramsdell Regional Center for the Arts page. You can also make your donation by check to:
