The Franke Center for the Arts Annual Campaign officially launched in 2001; your donation reflects your love and appreciation of the performing arts while creating a cultural impact in our community.

We are a registered non-profit organization with the State of Michigan’s Department of Charitable Organizations.

Each year these patron gifts are used to cover the costs associated with the high-caliber shows we bring to the Franke Center for the Arts. Annual donor support continues to be important in keeping the quality and affordable ticket prices that the Franke Center is known for.
