Institutional Giving

Children’s Theatre Company is grateful to corporations, foundations and government entities for their ongoing generosity and support of the arts. Nearly half of our $12 million annual operating budget is raised through contributed income, and we rely on our institutional partners to meet our goals. Thanks to our supportive community leaders, CTC serves more than 250,000 young people and community members each year with outstanding theatre productions, educational opportunities, and access programs.
