There are many ways you can Support the Arts here at The CM Performing Arts Center. As a Not-For-Profit organization, we rely heavily on Donations to keep bringing quality Theatrical Productions as well as Arts Education to Long Island. However, monetary Donations aren't the only way to Support the Arts.
Here are some of the many ways you can help us.
Donations - We welcome donations of any denomination. We understand everyone's means vary and that even small donations when pooled together go a long way! If considering setting up a donation in memoriam of a Person or Organization, we appreciate it if you contact the Office prior to doing so.
Inner Circle - Inner Circle Invites individuals and families to support CMPAC, with benefits designed to serve our friends in the community interested in supporting the arts. Support from the community is vital for sustaining CMPAC, and, thus, enhancing the quality of life for everyone on Long Island. Join the Inner Circle and be a part of the future of the arts on Long Island.
Inner Circle Corporate - Inner Circle Corporate is a wonderful way for your Business, Organization, or Civic Group to recognize Clients, Employees, or Members. By supporting the arts - corporations, organizations, and community groups demonstrate leadership and commitment to the quality of life on Long Island. Corporate support enables CMPAC to present the highest caliber theatrical performances possible. There are a variety of Sponsor Participation Levels to meet your budget and marketing needs. We offer flexibility with our sponsorship packages to fit your needs! Each sponsorship level comes with its own benefits!
Best Seat in the House Campaign - Our ongoing Best Seat in the House Campaign is an effort to restore our vintage Theatre Chairs to their former glory. Sure we could easily replace the chairs with modern plastic style theatre seats, however we strive to match that Vintage Theatre look. For a $250 donation, you will get your name on a seat AND help sponsor the chair to get a fresh coat of scratch resistant paint professionally done from a Local Auto Body Shop, and more importantly, reupholster the cushions to not only look better, but provide more comfort.
Noel S. Ruiz Scholarship Fund: One of the many important missions of The CM Performing Arts Center is to continue educating the next generation in the world of Theatrical Art. Donations to this fund go to one or more High School Seniors who have met the criteria to receive The Noel S. Ruiz Scholarship as well as one or more Children in our CM Kids/Little Kids/Juniors program who's family does not have the means to cover tuition costs.
Rentals - Whether you're renting The Noel S. Ruiz Theatre or The Onyx Theatre, or renting Sets, Props, or Costumes, it helps support the Theatre immensely.

Educational Classes - Registering your Kids/Grandkids/Nieces/Nephews/etc for any of our Educational Classes helps Support the Arts AND rewards a new generation to learn an appreciation for the arts. Don't have someone to Register but still want to help a kid in need? You can pay the registration fee and should we come across a student who wishes to attend but their family doesn't have the means to, you can feel rewarded having sponsored someone's education.
