What Your Gift Supports

Why Children’s Theatre Company?

As a nonprofit organization, we rely on the generosity of our community to create the extraordinary theatre experiences you know and love. Donations make up nearly half of our annual budget, and are a critical resource in supporting our mission to educate, challenge, and inspire young people an their communities. 

When you give to CTC, every dollar is poured directly back into our work—funding productions, creating scholarships, supporting our staff and artists, and sharing transformative theatre on our stages, in our classrooms, and out in the community. Your support ensures that there are no barriers to participation, and that every young person has a chance to experience the magic of the arts. 

Thank you for being a part of our CTC community.
