Why Donate To
The State Theatre Of Ithaca?

The reality is… the cost of running and maintaining this beautiful theatre greatly exceeds income from ticket sales, sponsorships and rental income.

Make a Donation

You make this happen

As a not-for-profit organization, we must rely on additional financial assistance to meet our annual needs. Generous contributions allow this organization to stabilize its foundation, and will help make The State Theatre a destination for generations of Tompkins County residents and visitors to enjoy for many more years. Tax-deductible gifts from donors also allows us to program our stage with a diverse array of live, engaging performances and enables us to preserve, maintain and improve the functionality and comfort of this Theatre as we remain this community’s center of performing arts activity.

Become a Sponsor

For over 8 decades, The State Theatre of Ithaca has been a focal point for Ithaca and Tompkins County. An elegant venue for concerts, movies and other live events, The State Theatre is also the perfect resource for your marketing needs. We have built a robust sponsorship program for corporations and individuals who want to help this organization in a significant way. By sponsoring a show, not only are you directly assisting The State Theatre and the artists that perform here, you are also helping us keep our ticket prices low. This helps downtown Ithaca remain an attractive cultural destination for visitors coming from outside of Tompkins County as well as families looking to relocate to the area.

With a strong focus of guest engagement, as well as print and digital advertising, The State Theatre of Ithaca can custom design a package for any budget or promotional objective.
