Friends of the Markay Contributions

The Markay Cultural Arts Center, which houses the Markay Theater and Gallery, is a regional non-profit entity, running under the direction of the Southern Hills Arts Council (SHAC), presenting performance and visual arts throughout the year for the benefit of Jackson County residents and residents throughout our region. The Southern Hills Arts Council is a non-profit organization, that depends on the contributions of individuals and businesses in order to meet our financial needs.markay-playbill_ad_sizes

Ticket sales only cover about 40% of our operating costs; therefore, the remaining 60% must come from contributors in order for us to continue to keep our doors open and offer you the best performances that we can afford. In other words, the more contributors we have, the better choices we have to bring you the kind of performances you want to see. Your contributions also support the various classes and activities that SHAC provides throughout the year.

All contributions are tax-deductible. We accept contributions at any level. Please consider joining our list of contributors to keep the Markay a living part of our community for years to come.
