WHY DONATE

As the historic Community Arts Center, we are key to the economic vitality of Williamsport’s downtown. Did you know that every $1 spent on tickets for an event at the Community Arts Center generates an additional $8 of cash flow into the local economy via hotel accommodations, area dining, and consumer retail purchases? This past season we generated over $2 million in ticket revenues, which translates to $12 million of trickle down inflow to the local economy. And yet, less than half of our operating revenue comes from ticket sales. When you buy a ticket at the CAC, you support the artist; when you make a contribution to the CAC, you support the arts in our community.
