In 2005, Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre Foundation was established as a non-profit whose purpose was to guide overall fundraising efforts for the building, secure additional naming rights dollars for the new facility, outline educational programs and identify future fundraising strategies.  After a successful capital campaign, the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre opened its doors on September 15, 2007.

In 2014, the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre Foundation was renamed ArtsBridge Foundation to better reflect its primary mission of arts education. Today, ArtsBridge Foundation produces quality arts education and community outreach programs designed to inspire creativity and foster the next generation of artists and arts supporters.
