Imagine: A new performing arts center in the Columbia River Gorge

The Mission of the Performing Arts Initiative…

…is to lead the development of a multi-use facility that will be a destination for outstanding performing arts in the Gorge.

Our DREAM BIG campaign is over. But it was a huge success!

“As President of the Performing Arts Initiative, I’d like to thank everyone that supported our “Dream Big” spring fundraising campaign.  I particularly want to thank those who contributed matches and challenges that helped to inspire the community.  Altogether we raised almost $70,000 toward our goal for the year.  It is an exciting time for PAI.  Over the next year, we hope to accomplish the following goals:

– Finalize the land lease terms;

– Hire a Philanthropic Advisor;

– Hire an architectural firm AND begin designing the performing arts center!

I am humbled by the response to this project.  It is a Big Dream and we can do it together as a community, for the community.  Thank you from all of us at PAI!”
