As the Ross-Ellis Center for Fine Arts is becoming a reality, we would like to offer you the opportunity to become a permanent part of this wonderful blessing from God. The finish line for fundraising is near and you can help us by “taking a seat” with a donation of $2,500 or more. For every seat you “take” we will attach an engraved brass plate in honor of the person, family or organization you desire to recognize.


As a “Take a Seat” campaign sponsor of a new seat(s), you will become part of the history and vibrant future of the Ross-Ellis Center for Fine Arts. Throughout the years to come, you will have the pleasure of knowing your generosity is making it possible for others to experience the joy of the performing arts right here in Haviland, Kansas. You have the chance to leave a lasting legacy on the Barclay College campus for generations to come.

There will be 580 seats in the auditorium and your generosity in honor of a loved one will bring us to the finish line.  Your donation to the “Take a Seat” campaign is fully tax-deductible and may be paid in installments over two years.

Questions you may have:

Can I pick my seat?

The goal is to finish this much needed facility.  We understand that some people may desire to pick a certain seat location, but we would ask that your participation would be for the overall completion of this project.

Will I be able to sit in my seat(s) at performances?

The “Take a Seat” campaign does not guarantee that the seat(s) which you have named will be available for you to sit in at events held at the Ross-Ellis Center.
