Donors and Members

Each year, members and donors bring the arts to life by helping support opportunities to participate, celebrate and grow through the performing arts. The Gaillard Center’s members and donors support more than 25,000 students in arts-education programs and outreach efforts, plus a variety of incredible community events hosted at the Gaillard Center. All that we offer would not be possible without the amazing support of each and every member and donor.

Charleston Gaillard Center Three-Year Dance Initiative

The Charleston Gaillard Center is committed to a three-year dance initiative, which will bring some of the world’s best dancers and ballet companies to the Lowcountry. Beginning in 2021 and ending in 2023, the program includes free and paid performances, educational outreach, and opportunities for adult education.

Support for this program is made possible by generous donors who have committed time and resources to the Charleston Gaillard Center’s Dance Initiative.
