Naming Opportunities:
To assist with sustainable scholarship, program, equipment and personnel needs of RAC, the Fredonia College Foundation has developed naming opportunities that would formally name spaces and help to establish endowment funds. A wide selection of naming opportunities is available to donors for their consideration. All gifts are charitable contributions that will help to further the mission of Fredonia, the College of Visual and Performing Arts and the Rockefeller Arts Center. 

For more information regarding naming opportunities, visit: or contact June Miller-Spann, Liaison Fredonia College of Visual and Performing Arts. Contact June by email at or phone at 716-673-3321.
