The Morrison Center Endowment Foundation
The Foundation’s principal goal is to act as a financial safety net for the Velma V. Morrison Center for the Performing Arts in regards to operational and capital expenditures when additional funding is required. In addition, the Foundation encourages expanded use of the Center by subsidizing facility costs to Idaho’s performing arts groups. Grant applications are administered in two grant cycles. Deadlines are July 1st and January 1st of each year. For more information on the Application For Funding, the Foundation may be contacted by mail at 827 E Park Blvd, Suite 200, Boise, Idaho 83712, or by phone at 208-345-5225.

A Point of Pride...
"We are very fortunate to have the Morrison Center, one of the most impressive theaters in the country, on the Boise State University campus. The Morrison Center provides access to world-class performing arts to our students and public audiences from across the region.
The Morrison Center is also a tremendous asset to our educational programming in theatre arts, dance, and music. Approximately half of the building is devoted to classroom and practice space for these programs, and student performances occur on the main stage throughout the year. The Morrison Center is a significant point of pride for Boise State University!" - Past President Robert W. Kustra, Boise State University
Every Great City…
“Every great city has a great performing arts facility. In the Morrison Center, Boise has that and much more: a soaring, visible tribute to the importance of arts and culture in our community. As the most isolated city of our size in the Lower 48, Boise possesses a fierce self-reliance in everything we do, including music, theater and dance. The Morrison Center provides more than just a stage for creative expression; rising from the banks of the Boise River, midway between the iconic architectural bookends of the Idaho Capitol and the Boise Depot, the Morrison Center stands as a testament to this city’s embrace of the artistic.” - Mayor David H. Bieter, Boise, Idaho
