More than 20 years ago, members of our community made the commitment to build our fantastic center and theatre. Originally, these members created a membership package that aligned with the annual Broadway Entertainment Series. Over the years, other supporters wanted to be a part of The Classic Center and the Foundation but found they had other interests rather than the Broadway series. The Classic Center Cultural Foundation now offers two benefit packages to meet the needs of our community and its supporters. The Center Stage Society package offers benefits closely aligned with the Broadway Entertainment Series and the 501 Club package provides benefits aligned with the music, comedians and other entertainment The Classic Center offers. When the founders of The Classic Center and the Foundation first created this center of culture, civic and social duty they didn't know that their vision would lead to $40 million in annual economic impact to the Athens community and secure the arts' home in Athens. The Classic Center Cultural Foundation has also created an Endowment Fund. This Endowment Fund will ensure that the arts forever have a home in Athens. A portion of the proceeds of membership are given to The Classic Center Cultural Foundation's Endowment Fund.
