The Friends of Staller are a remarkable group of people who have invested in the future of the Staller Center. The philanthropy of the Friends provides nearly half of the operating budget for Staller each year, and it is this group that has allowed the Staller Center to offer amazing live performances, put on the annual Stony Brook Film Festival, and make other necessary investments. We can't thank our Friends enough for all that they have helped us accomplish!
Known as “the people’s diva,” soprano Renée Fleming captivates audiences around the globe with her sumptuous voice, consummate artistry and compelling stage presence. The Metropolitan Opera superstar graces the 2019 Staller Center Gala in a recital with her longtime collaborator, the distinguished pianist Hartmut Höll, bringing Staller Center patrons a special program of beloved arias and songs.
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.Donate
