The Staller Center's annual gala supports Staller Center programming and outreach initiatives. Tickets are partially tax deductible, include VIP seating in our reserved section, admission to the Staller Gala Reception, and acknowledgement in the program's gold pages.
The philanthropy of Staller Center patrons provides nearly half of the operating budget for Staller each year, and it is because of your support that we can offer amazing live performances, put on the annual Stony Brook Film Festival, and make other necessary investments. Thank you for all you have helped us to accomplish!
The Stony Brook Film Festival is completely funded by philanthropy. Our sponsors and donors are the reason for our continued success. This year, we have created a separate fund specifically for the Stony Brook Film Festival, from which we can support our operations. From flying in filmmakers for Q&As to paying for screening fees, donations to this fund keep the Stony Brook Film Festival as one of the best film festivals.
The Barbara N. Wien Arts & Education fund is dedicated to providing arts outreach to our community. From masterclasses to complimentary tickets to school districts and non-profits, the Staller Center brings the arts to the youth and underserved in our area.
Your generous donation supports the Paul W. Zuccaire Gallery's exhibitions, events and educational programming. The Zuccaire Gallery presents dynamic professional and student art exhibitions, as well as Artist Talks, Salons, Art Crawls and school programs. Located on the first floor of the Staller Center for the Arts at Stony Brook University, the Gallery is free and open to the public.
