Long Reach for The Arts

Long Center's Long Reach for the ArtsAt the Long Center, we believe that inspiration is for everyone.

We are committed to making the Long Center and its productions available to as many community members as possible. Thanks to donors at all levels, we’re pleased to sponsor the Long Reach for the Arts community outreach initiative. This program donates hundreds of tickets every year to Central Texas’ social and community-based service organizations for distribution to their members and clients, free of charge.

Support Long Reach for the Arts

Since inception in 2008, the Long Reach for the Arts program has gifted more than $136,000 in tickets to over 45 organizations such as Manos de Cristo, SafePlace, Ronald McDonald House, CASA of Travis County, Any Baby Can, Caritas of Austin, Austin State Hospital, Big Brothers Big Sisters, YMCA, AISD and Austin Children’s Shelter.

You can help us provide outstanding entertainment, inspiration and the magic of live performances to even more children and families, absolutely free of charge, with your generous gift. Your gift of any size combined with other gifts can make all the difference for a young person or under-privileged adult who has never been to a live music, dance or theatre performance.
