Meet Our Donors

We’re asking our donors to support an approach to the arts in higher education that is pushing boundaries… their willingness to go on that journey with us is critical to our future.

Your support truly​ makes a difference.

The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center would like to thank its donors: individuals and organizations who support the performing arts at the University of Maryland, which includes the School of Music, School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies, Michelle Smith Performing Arts Library, and the Center’s Visiting Artist Program.
