At the Paramount Center for the Arts, we believe in the power of the arts to inspire, transport and captivate us. As Central Minnesota’s home for arts and entertainment, we strive to breathe life into downtown St. Cloud and makes our community a more vibrant, desirable and enjoyable place to live, work, visit, and play.
More than 104,000 people come to the Paramount every year to take part in meaningful arts experiences that improve the quality of life of students, youth, and adults of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds. Whether it is a student at a summer camp being able to express themselves fully for the first time, a group of old friends getting to reunite to support a local musician, or a young artist getting to take the leap and display their artwork to the public, these moving experiences are all made possible by your generosity.
As a non-profit organization, much of our programming is made possible through individual donations from our giving patrons. Your contribution makes it possible for us to provide diverse, dynamic and innovative programming each year.

Workplace Donation Match
Corporate matching gifts are a type of philanthropy in which companies financially match donations that their employees make to nonprofit organizations. When an employee makes a donation, they’ll request the matching gift from their employer, who then makes their own donation. Ask your Human Resources Director to find out if your company will match your gift!
