Why does San Jose Rep need your support?
Ticket prices in the non-profit performing arts never cover costs. It is the passionate belief and commitment of generous donors that sustains the non-profit performing arts.
With government support for the arts decreasing every year, our hope rests with the private sector. If individuals don’t support the arts, the arts will cease to exist.
San Jose Rep strives to be accessible to everyone by keeping ticket prices affordable. That’s why we depend upon support from individuals, corporations and foundations to bridge the gap between ticket revenue and operating costs.
The benefits are many and profound.
