Corporate Membership

Investing just a few dollars per employee makes an important contribution to the region’s quality of life while returning valuable benefits to you and your company.

Corporate membership returns visibility and value to your company in one easy package. Together, we strengthen the business cycle, drive regional economic development, educate and inspire our children, and bring arts, culture and innovation to Central Pennsylvania.

Your generous support is vital to fulfilling the mission and serving the 400,000 people who visit us each year. Whitaker Center is widely regarded as a regional treasure, but centers like ours are not self-sustaining. Industry averages for earned revenue typically are 50%-70% of the budget. At 66%, Whitaker Center ranks higher than most. Third-party revenue streams are in place, but none are sufficient to fill the gap. Your corporate gift goes toward our annual fundraising goal, which represents the remaining 34%. Proceeds from this program keep field trip costs affordable for thousands of area school students, and keep programs, performances and giant-screen films accessible to our diverse community.

Executive Card Holders receive invitations to events and openings and advance ticket purchase privileges.
