Support The Arts @VRCFA


Along with performances presented in partnership with the Southern Ohio Performing Arts Association and those produced by the SSU Theatre Program, the Vern Riffe Center for the Arts is the primary event venue for a number of local arts and culture entities.

Please consider making a donation to support the work they do in our community.

Arts Endowment

“Reach for the Stars” campaign established with the SSU Development Foundation in 1996 to provide funds for all cultural performances in the Vern Riffe Center for the Arts, including Community Development Grants to encourage the use of the Vern Riffe Center by area non-profit organizations.
