Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts
Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts

The Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts is UC Davis’ world-class performing arts facility. Its annual season of performances features an expansive mix of seasoned masters, emerging artists, and leading cultural figures. 

Join us this Give Day by supporting our incredible performances and educational programming!

Mondavi Center also hosts productions and rehearsals by music, theatre, and dance students at UC Davis, as well as those of regional arts organizations. Many of the artists appearing at Mondavi Center also participate in a broad range of educational outreach activities, including school matinees, master classes, and in-school artist residencies.

We are kindly asking for the following support:

  • Annual Fund

A significant portion of Mondavi Center’s annual funding comes from individual support. Your gift to Mondavi Center helps to make possible the performances, arts education, and community outreach that make Mondavi Center such an important part of cultural life at UC Davis and in the surrounding communities.

  • Artistic Ventures Fund

The Artistic Ventures Fund (AVF) was established during the Mondavi Center’s 10th season and was designed to help ensure innovative programing and community impact. This Artistic Ventures Fund functions as a quasi-endowment fund, providing the stability of an endowment but the flexibility to provide resources for exceptional projects, when needed.
