Annual Fund

Through a gift to Annual Fund, please join us in making The Granada Theatre a vibrant home for artists and audiences in Santa Barbara. 

Your contribution helps to ensure that The Granada Theatre’s wide variety of arts and entertainment programming continues to be among the finest in the Santa Barbara region.

Your gift helps The Granada Theatre bring nationally recognized arts and entertainment programs and performers to our stage. But, more importantly, it helps us to guarantee that the theatre remains a stunning home for all of our valued resident companies, including: the Community Arts and Music Association (CAMA), Music Academy, Opera Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara Choral Society, Santa Barbara Symphony, State Street Ballet and UCSB Arts & Lectures.
