Capital Campaign

The transformation of the original Edmonds High School auditorium into the new Edmonds Center for the Arts (ECA) was completed on schedule and on budget in October 2006. That same month, local arts groups and other rental clients began appearing on the ECA stage. However, we continue to seek the support of our community to help complete the “Bringing the Arts to Life” Capital Campaign. Approximately $15.7M in public and private funds has been raised to meet our total project goal of $18.5M. Of that amount, $2M has been raised from individuals, corporations, and foundations, who, because of their support have played a major role in making this community dream a reality. It is only through the generosity, vision and leadership of community members like you that we were able to finish the first phase of renovations and continue to develop ECA into the thriving community resource it was designed to be. There are many ways to get involved.

Sponsor a seat for $1,000! As a seat sponsor, you can create a personalized message to be engraved on a plaque and affixed to the available auditorium seat of your choice*. Honor a family member, friend or the memory of someone close to you, highlight your business or your own passion for the performing arts**. Besides your sponsorship plaque, you will also be recognized as an ECA donor on the lobby donor wall and your contribution will be directed to the ECA Capital Campaign.

*Exact plaque placement is based on actual seat availability. Sponsorship of a seat does not guarantee that the seat will be available for personal use during performances.

**Plaques are engraved metal and may include up to three lines of up to 15 characters each for a total of 45 characters, including spaces and punctuation.
