Ways to Give

The Etherredge Center

Why Give?

The Etherredge Center is proud to be able to host the events that have been presented over the years, however, we need your support to continue to bring superior arts programming to the CSRA. Your assistance will also enable the educational mission of the Etherredge Center to flourish as we provide workshops and outreach programs to our students and community.

It is the mission of the Etherredge Center to be an enduring place for diverse, quality artistic performance and exhibitions, a place for community arts collaboration and growth, and a place where the arts stimulate the thinking and emotions of the residents of the CSRA.

Institutional Giving

The Etherredge Center for the Fine and Performing Arts gratefully acknowledges its institutional donors for their generous investment in the performing arts at USC Aiken. State agencies, private charitable foundations, corporations, and small businesses in the CSRA help underwrite performances that distinguish the Etherredge Center as one of the premiere performing arts facilities in the CSRA.

Tickets sales and partnership funds support the Center’s diverse programming which provide meaningful opportunities to engage audiences both on and off campus. The collaboration between visiting artists, students, and members of the community is invaluable to the future of our institution.

Volunteer

Ushering is a fun way to get more involved with the arts. The Etherredge Center is proud to have a wonderful community of volunteers that works with us regularly each season. Our ushers come from all over Aiken and the surrounding area, and are a valued and important part of the Etherredge Center staff.

Plus, in return for their services, volunteers get to see a show for free. Of course, when a performance is sold out, seating availability will be limited, but this is always a positive occurrence. It is our goal to deliver the highest quality of community service.

If you are interested in becoming an Etherredge Center volunteer, please contact 803-641-3328.
