Naming Opportunities

Your gift may used to establish a permanent endowment fund for a specific purpose at the Straz Center.  Named endowment gifts offer special opportunities to honor the donor’s family, a loved one, or one’s self. Funds will help the Straz Center to accomplish artistic and educational goals, as well as help to meet the challenges of a complex business environment.

Naming opportunities include:
Physical Space
A variety of the Center’s physical assets are available for naming in recognition of endowment gifts at various levels.  From classrooms to administrative offices to artistic spaces, the Straz Center Development staff can provide you a complete roster of naming opportunities.

Endowed Scholarships
Providing scholarships for needy and deserving students at the Patel Conservatory is crucial. For as little as $25,000 you can create a named educational scholarship fund for students who need financial assistance or for the artistically gifted. Your gift, which will be named in perpetuity, will provide scholarship support each year for children or adults to participate in the Straz Center’s education programs.
