Your Support Brings Great Things To The Stage!

Presenting some of the worlds finest performing artists on the Niswonger stage is an inspiring task; however, ticket sales and rental income don’t begin to cover the full costs. Every year, we strive to enhance the quality and quantity of performances available to our patrons. Friends who make a Charitable Contribution actually partner in programming success! 

As a non-profit organization, the Niswonger Performing Arts Center's mission is to provide a premier venue for a wide variety of performing arts, concerts, lectures, meetings, and special events which will inspire, educate, and entertain residents of and visitors to Van Wert County, and to provide an economic catalyst by increasing cultural tourism, creating new jobs, and generating business for the region.

To achieve our mission, the Niswonger must annually raise a percentage of our total revenue from charitable contributions.

We are able to offer outstanding programming thanks to the generous gifts of caring individuals throughout the region each year.

The Van Wert Area Performing Arts Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
