Bechtel has donated $30,000 to the Arts Center Task Force. They are one of seven donors in the Capital Club to give the task force $20,000 or more. The Arts Center Task Force is working towards raising $25 Million through donations and grants since they are not seeking increases in taxes to fund the center. The Arts Center Task Force put out a press release regarding Bechtel National, Inc. and their support. In the statement, they describe the 800 seat theater, an art gallery, and a multipurpose room.

According to an article in the Tri-Cities Area Journal of Business the current Vista Field in Kennewick will be the location of the future Tri-Cities Performing Arts Center. This will only be possible if the nonprofit is able to raise the financing required to build it.
The nonprofit needs to have seventy-five percent of $10,000, or $7,500, either in hand or show that it is committed, in order for the sale to be finalized. This was the agreed upon amount to purchase 2.2 acres in the center of Vista Field. The letter of intent was signed in March and they were given a two year deadline. During this two year agreement, the port will not entertain any other offers on the land.
The Port of Kennewick and the Arts Center Task Force signed a letter of intent in March so the arts nonprofit can buy 2.2 acres at the center of Vista Field for $10,000.
