Commitment to Racial Equity
The Lancaster Performing Arts Center Foundation is dedicated to promoting and maintaining the Lancaster Performing Arts Center as the Antelope Valley’s epicenter for the arts, by supporting both direct arts engagement and arts education and where the lives of students and the diverse culture of the community are enriched.
The Lancaster Performing Arts Center Foundation (LPACF) is dedicated to enriching, inspiring and uniting the diverse community of the Antelope Valley through the common language and experience of the performing arts and arts education.
Our support of the Lancaster Performing Arts Center and its programming generates opportunities to enhance and improve the quality of life of those in our community, including those historically marginalized based on race, ethnicity, class, age, ability, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, socio-economic status, national origin, geography, citizenship status, indigenous status and religion.
The application of LPACF’s mission, to support both direct arts engagement and arts education where the lives of all students and the diverse culture of the community are enriched, is evaluated annually by the board of directors, and accomplished through our dedication to the just and equitable distribution of programmatic, financial and informational resources. LPACF is committed to the intentional implementation of cultural equity and inclusion within all policies, operations, and programs to reduce barriers and increase outcomes for all.
Enriching, Inspiring and Uniting the diverse community of the Antelope Valley through the common language and experience of the arts.
Since its inception in 1989, the Lancaster Performing Arts Center Foundation has, through the generous contributions of their supporters, continued to fulfill their mission by providing for enhancements and quality upgrades for the Lancaster Performing Arts Center facility and programming. In doing so, the Lancaster Performing Arts Center has become the premier entertainment venue in the Antelope Valley.
Additionally, the LPAC Foundation, in partnership with the community and the Lancaster Performing Arts Center, has made it possible for thousands of students to experience, many for the first time, educational and inspirational dance, musical and theatrical performances at the Performing Arts Center and in-school outreaches, through the Arts for Youth program. Community Performing Arts Grants are also awarded annually by the Foundation to deserving organizations for their involvement in the performing arts. In 2016 the Foundation developed the Performing Arts Scholarship program, committing to annually award a deserving local high school graduate a $5,000 performing arts scholarship. The scholarship program is an expression of our commitment to advance the dreams of our talented young people by offering life-changing opportunities toward the pursuit of higher education.
LPAC Foundation donors are valued partners in our ongoing effort to support the arts in our community. Even with the support of our ticket buying audience, the Performing Arts Center relies on generous charitable contributions from our community. This financial support is critical to sustain the artistic excellence of the performances, and to help serve the broadest possible audience with innovative education and community programs.
From sponsoring events to purchasing student tickets and stage equipment, our fundraising efforts address a broad spectrum of needs while affording flexibility to donors.
