Name A Seat

Name a seat at the Straz Center and you will live in history while also making a valuable contribution to our future. Your generous donation will support arts education programs and scholarships, as well as general programming at the Straz Center. 

From as little as $500, you will be recognized with a plaque mounted on the seat you select. This is an ideal way to:

  • Give a unique gift.
  • Honor someone special.
  • Commemorate a special occasion.
  • Celebrate the arrival of children or grandchildren.
  • Pay tribute to years of enjoyment at the Straz Center.
