The Foundation: Our History and Partnership

Since its founding in 1986, the partnership comprised of the Foundation for the Performing Arts Center, Cal Poly and the City of San Luis Obispo have been resolute in their efforts to make performing arts in San Luis Obispo County thrive. From 1986-1996, the Foundation and our partners were the persistent, driving force behind the realization of an outstanding performing arts venue in San Luis Obispo County. Generous community members, through the Foundation, contributed $12.5 million of the $30 million needed to complete the building, which began hosting events in 1996.
