The S.I.T. Campaign: Seats in Theatres

The S.I.T. (Seats in Theatres) Campaign

The School of Communication, Media & Theatre Arts needs your help to replace all seats in both the Quirk and Sponberg Theatres. We are seeking to raise a minimum of $200,000 between September, 2019 and August, 2020. 

You can help us reach our goal by making a gift for individual or multiple seats in one or both theatres. Or you can make a contribution of any size to support this important cause. 

Seat naming 

Donate a seat in the Quirk or Sponberg Theatre for only $500 per seat. 

Every seat donated will receive a personalized nameplate on its armrest. Purchase a seat for yourself; to celebrate your student; to memorialize a loved one; to honor the legacy of a mentor/professor; or even in the name of a group, organization, or company. The choice is yours!

Update: Thanks to a generous matching grant from the EMU President's Office, If you make a $500 gift for one seat, the 1-to-1 match will allow you to name an additional seat!

Donate

Cannot afford to purchase an entire seat? Donations of any amount will assist us in reaching our goal. Remember, every little bit helps!

Can I pick my seat?

Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. We will do our best to accommodate your requested seating location. 

Will I be able to sit in my seat(s) at performances?

The S.I.T. Campaign does not include a seat license. We therefore cannot guarantee that named seat(s) will be available for personal use during ticketed performances.

Pledge option
