The Performance Society

The Performance Society is the annual fund for Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts.

Like most arts organizations, Hammons Hall relies on external support from individuals and businesses. Donations to The Performance Society help defray costs of presenting performances on stage, contribute to funding for master classes and outreach activities, and assist with operational costs for the facility. Your partnership enables Juanita K. Hammons Hall to bring a diverse and notable variety of artists and entertainment to our community. 

When you become a member of The Performance Society, your contribution is recognized throughout the season with special mention in the Hall's season program, as well as through the Missouri State University Foundation. Donors receive early notification of upcoming events, ticket pre-sale opportunities, and invitations to special receptions. Member at the Mezzanine level and above receive additional benefits, including vouchers to use toward the purchase of tickets. 

Gifts are tax deductible, minus the benefits at each donor level, and are acknowledged by a tax receipt letter from the Missouri State University Foundation.

Contributions to The Performance Society help keep ticket prices at a reasonable level. At the same time, your generous support allows the Hall to attract renowned artists and must-see performances to our community — enriching the lives of the students at Missouri State, as well as citizens of Springfield and communities throughout the region.
