In 1981 LBC opened its doors with a mission to enrich, educate, and entertain our community through world-class performances, visual arts, as well as transformative education and engagement programs. LBC is a home for community gatherings that makes our region a better place to live, by enhancing our quality of life.
Fund for the Future is a 3-5 year initiative to grow the endowment, ensure LBC’s ongoing presence in Sonoma County for years to come and allow everyone to experience what LBC has to offer.
LBC is an independent non-profit and receives little to no local government support. Tickets only cover about 50% of total annual operations. Endowed funds are those that are invested by the LBC to produce income to offset operating needs and support other approved purposes. Interest income generated from a larger endowment will further support annual operations and help us achieve our vision for the future:
- Remove economic obstacles so all students and educators participate free of charge
- All art genres are represented – dance, theater, music, and visual arts
- Reach a wider audience by taking artistic risks
- Align education and content to community priorities through diversified programming
- Audiences served reflect the make-up of our community
- Maintain the sense of belonging that is unique to LBC and increase the use of our campus as a central gathering place
- Up-and-coming local talent is celebrated and presented
- Opportunities are offered to make art, as well as see art
