Support Us

The Norris Cultural Arts Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Programming is made possible through the generous, continuing support of the Norris and Collins families, ticket sales, support from CUSD 303, the hard work of the Norris Gallery committee, the Arts Society committee, and the generosity of individual and corporate contributors, event sponsors and program advertisers.

If you embrace our mission to bring quality cultural programming into our community, please consider supporting us as a donor, sponsor or advertiser. Volunteers are always welcome – we encourage your participation and the sharing of your time and talents.

Help keep the arts alive in St. Charles and the Fox Valley!
