Stambaugh Auditorium Giving Society

Like the iconic pillars that support the majestic grand entrance of Stambaugh Auditorium, our donors are the pillars that have sustained the mission of Stambaugh Auditorium for the past 97 years.

The support of our donors has been more important than ever during the challenges presented by the pandemic.  With the loss of earned revenue due to closures and bans on mass gatherings, your support has been vital to our ability to survive.  Thanks to the philanthropic support that has sustained us through the pandemic, Stambaugh Auditorium has been able to face these challenges head-on and is now in the process of recovering and growing.

  •  We have adjusted our business model and continue to offer virtual and live-streamed programming and options for hybrid events.   
  • We are in the final phase of a $4.1 million capital project to replace the monumental staircase and restore the exterior façade of this magnificent building which is a treasure of our community.  
  • We have entered into a partnership with the Youngstown Symphony Society to provide management services for both facilities including administration, operations, fundraising, marketing, bookkeeping, and event booking.  We look forward to expanding this type of partnership agreement with other local arts organizations as well.  
  • Through this collaborative spirit we can work together to ensure sustainability for these historic organizations and growth for the arts and culture sector of our local economy.   

With the support of our donors, Stambaugh Auditorium has been able to provide enjoyment and create lasting memories for thousands of individuals and families who have experienced events at Stambaugh Auditorium.  With the continued support of our donors and our community, we will do so for generations to come.

Although a donation of any amount will be greatly appreciated, gifts of $100 or more will be included in the Stambaugh Pillars Giving Society.  All members of the Stambaugh Pillars Giving Society will receive benefits including a special listing on the Stambaugh Auditorium website and in event program booklets, advance notice of upcoming events and early access to tickets, early VIP entrance for select events, an invitation to all Stambaugh Auditorium signature events, and an invitation to an exclusive Stambaugh Pillars recognition celebration.   

Your support will be deeply appreciated.
