You may have fond memories of taking classes, attending special lectures or performing in the University Theatre.
Dedicate a Seat - and know that you are making a difference.

Leave a Seat Legacy  

I invite you to join us as we continue the final improvements to our University Theatre.
The remaining project is to upgrade the audience seats, and we need your help.

Dedicate a Seat today, and become a part of our history! (View the Brochure)

Your tax-deductible contribution will help enhance our patrons’ experience for years to come. An engraved nameplate on the seat/s will display your name or anyone else whom you would like to honor – or consider naming an entire row, with additional name recognition strikingly displayed at the end of each aisle. All Dedicate a Seat donors will be recognized in an attractive display in the University Theare lobby

The impact of COVID-19 makes this seat campaign more important than ever. The University Theatre will become a critical venue when the installation is complete, as the site will offer patrons the social distancing needed once we are able to welcome you back to campus  and it may be used for classes to ensure the safety of our students if restrictions remain in place.

To Dedicate a Seat, or for more information contact Gail Vorsas at or 561-297-2337.

Note: the Coronavirus CARES Act included two charitable giving incentives for cash gifts made to public charities such as FAU during 2020: 1) $300 deduction for individuals who don’t currently itemize on their federal taxes; and 2) 100% of adjusted gross income (AGI) deduction. Either of these may be helpful to you. For more information visit
