“How wonderful to have The Lensic in our community–not just for its architectural magnificence or because it gives the city, at long last, a forum for artistic events–but for the obvious fact that your support for nonprofits proves The Lensic has a soul and sense of community.”
– Barbara F. Goldman, former Executive Director, Rape Crisis Center
In the last decade, The Lensic Performing Arts Center has become an essential part of the Santa Fe arts community. Its success has meant year-round inspiring, thought-provoking and classic performing arts programs in the City Different.
The Lensic thrives because of the generosity of donors who recognize the value of having a world-class performing arts center in downtown Santa Fe and who support the contribution The Lensic makes to our community.
Support from Lensic donors also gives essential dollars to all of the performances on the stage – more than 200 each year from a wide variety of nonprofit, educational and for-profit organizations. This assistance allows The Lensic to rent the venue to local groups at deep discounts.
