Support the Long Center for generations to come by making endowment, legacy, and non-cash gifts to help secure the future of performing arts and creativity in Austin.

Endowment Giving

Make an enduring gift in support of performing arts in Austin by contributing to one of our endowment funds. A strong endowment is vital to our continued success, creating financial stability, and allowing the Long Center to weather any storm. 

Our endowment funds keep your contributions intact permanently, and a percentage of the return on investment is allocated to annual operations or the Heller Awards for Young Artists. 

Long Center Endowment Fund supports operational activities including performances & concerts, education programs, community projects & collaborative programs, and special events & festivals. 

Heller Fund for Excellence in Musical Theatre supports the Heller Awards for Young Artists (HAYAs) education program.


We welcome foundation support for programmatic & operational funding. Contact our team for more information on how your foundation can support our mission. 


Supporting the Long Center all year long is this simple — AmazonSmile donates 0.5% of the price of eligible, everyday purchases using this special link. 

Legacy Giving

Legacy gifts are the cornerstones that build our future and allow donors to make a lasting investment, ensuring that the Long Center continues to serve our community’s cultural needs for future generations. 

Consider a gift in your will, a beneficiary designation, leveraging your IRA, or other vehicles to support the Long Center. We encourage you to consult with an attorney or tax adviser when considering a legacy gift. 

Matching Gifts

Get more out of your generosity by having your employer match your gift — all you have to do is ask! Contact your HR department to see if your company has a matching program.
