Thank you for considering a contribution to the Morris Performing Arts Center 100 Year Anniversary Committee. Your support will allow us to make significant progress toward ensuring the next 100 years of fulfillment through the arts for the next generation.

The Morris has a rich history of vast community support. In fact, it’s been a collection of motivated, arts-loving citizens who have stepped in to save and keep the Morris for South Bend that allows us to celebrate 100 years and look toward next 100 together now.

Ways to Give

Capital Contributions

Your contribution to our capital campaign will ensure we are able to complete the necessary capital upgrades, inside and outside of the Morris, that will see this beautiful building into the next 100 years of arts and culture in our community. Contributions to this fund can be made over time or in recurring amounts.


One of the most critical elements of the Morris’ 100 Campaign is the establishment of two endowment funds: an Equity in the Arts endowment and an ongoing maintenance fund. Gifts to these funds will guarantee the future for the next generation of Morris patrons through managed investment dividends. Contributions to the endowments can be made over time or in recurring amounts.

Stock, Bonds or Securities Gifts

We are able to accept gifts in the form of stock, bonds or securities. Contributions to this fund can be made over time or in recurring amounts.

Planned Gifts

Planned gifts can come in many forms and are impactful to the future of this campaign. Planned gifts include gifts through a will, retirement assets, real estate sales, annuities and insurance policies.

Matching Gifts

Many corporate employers offer gift matching for their employees making donations to 501c3 with charitable gifts. We ask all donors to confirm with their employer whether or not they offer an active gift matching program.

Naming Rights

We have dozens of Morris naming rights opportunities to be offered with gifts starting from $5,000. A member of the Morris Committee will review these opportunities with you as you consider making a gift to this campaign.

Gifts to the Morris 100 are 501c3 eligible through the VPA Foundation and are tax deductible for our contributors.
