Arena Stage The Mead Center for American Theater MY ACCOUNT
Lift American Voices to new heights! Give by December 31


Event Calendar

Arena Stage relies heavily on your philanthropic support, in addition to your patronage, to ensure the strength and vitality of Arena Stage and our mission as a national center dedicated to the production, presentation, development and study of American work. Ticket sales only cover 65% of what it costs to operate the theater, the rest comes from tax-deductible donations made by individuals and organizations who support Arena Stage.

There are a broad range of opportunities available for you to show your support. Whether you choose to become an individual member, make a gift to Arena’s Next Stage Campaign, sponsor a season production or educational program, or attend one of our annual special events, you will help provide the essential resources that enable Arena Stage to remain the premier producing theater in our nation’s capital.

Each opportunity for support offers its own rewards by filling an important philanthropic need, offering tax and financial benefits, or providing access to exclusive privileges and behind-the-scenes opportunities.  We look forward to helping you explore those opportunities for support and hope that the resources on these web pages are helpful to you as you consider making a gift to Arena Stage.
