The College’s Madison Project includes a state-of-the-art centerpiece for the performing arts complex at 11th St. and Santa Monica Boulevard, will provide a wide range of programs designed to serve both the campus and the broader Westside community.

Under the oversight of the Santa Monica College Foundation and now under the Madison Project Foundation, a 501c(3) non-profit organization, private and public donations are being sought from individuals, corporations, government entities, and foundations.

By January 1, 2007, $45 million had been committed.

Naming opportunities are available upon request, from $10,000 orchestra seats to $5 million to name the center itself. To receive additional information and a current list of naming opportunities, contact Project Director, Dale Franzen at the Madison Project office at 310-434-3430.

Pledges can be paid over one to three years and are fully tax deductible to the extent of the law.

Gifts are also needed for the on-going Madison Performance Series now in its seventh season.
