Our Members, corporate sponsors and individual donors are the reason bergenPAC has been able to serve as the community's home for cultural entertainment and arts education for so long with not just great performing lineups, but also a variety of outreach initiatives. We are determined to continue filling that role today and tomorrow - but we need your help to ensure that can happen.
While navigating financial challenges is expected at a nonprofit, COVID-19 has severely impacted bergenPAC's ability to fulfill its mission of making the arts and arts education more accessible to everyone in the community. Our facilities will likely remain dark into next year, but our community impact is still alive as we adapted The Performing Arts School at bergenPAC into a digital platform and live streamed family-friendly shows.
Our theater building has had a few names in its nearly 100-year existence because every time this cultural beacon's existence was challenged, the community rallied to keep its spirit alive. You can now support that heritage to ensure that we are able to once again open our doors to the community.
Only you can help Keep the Arts Alive!
