BUILT BY THE COMMUNITY
It is truly the community’s generosity and commitment to the arts that fuels the Long Center’s continued success. During the campaign to fund the Long Center, Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long provided a visionary gift of $22 million. However, the vast majority of donations were under $500. Today, individual donors contribute more than $1 million annually.
The Long Center is a 501(c)3 organization and is one of Austin’s few non-profit live entertainment venues. As a non-profit, we survive and thrive on the support from our community. There are many ways to support us and we accept donations of any size (to the extent permitted by law).
