Did you know that ticket sales usually cover less than half the costs of presenting an artist at Hammons Hall? The Hall relies on corporate and private partnerships to underwrite the great performances our patrons have come to expect. Partnership opportunities provide underwriters with the option to list their company logo in the Hall's print materials, as well as other benefits, such as tickets, premium seating opportunities for select shows, and use of the Fuldner Lounge to host receptions, if available. Partners are invited to the annual Preview Party each spring, when the Hall announces the new season of shows.
For more information on the benefits of partnering with Hammons Hall, call Anjanette Nowell at 417-836-5711 or e-mail ANowell@missouristate.edu.
Additional Giving Opportunities
The Hall strives to provide the highest quality performances and experiences for our patrons. Over the years, we have created special programs that ensure the arts will continue to be accessible to our community. Please consider making an additional donation to support one or more of these endowments. Your gift will be added to the specified endowment fund, which will add to the funding that is available for support of these projects each year.
The Children's Ticket Fund Endowment – provides tickets to underserved youth to attend cultural and educational events at the Hall. Contributions from caring members of our community make the Children's Ticket Fund possible.
The Virginia C. Bussey Opera Endowment – provides annual assistance for presenting opera productions at the Hall in partnership with the local opera company whenever possible.
The Classics Endowment – provides underwriting support for the presentation of professional artists performing classic literature, music, dance or theatre.
Juanita K. Hammons Hall Endowment – this fund provides for the Hall in the greatest area of need. In the past, funds from this endowment have been used for repairs, stage refinishing, acoustic curtains and other important maintenance and upgrades.
