We are incredibly grateful for the continued generosity from our beloved patrons and the entire community who support our three venues and School of Performing Arts.

Show income is what carries our operations. As we ride out this time of not having incoming show ticker revenue, we need your help. We are stretching every dollar as far as we possibly can and working with a skeletal staff. But it’s just not enough.

Your gift  will help us to get through this season unlike any other in our history. Gifts of any size, large or small, are deeply appreciated.

Gifts can also be mailed to the Duluth Playhouse at 211 E. Superior Street, Duluth, MN 55802.

Have you considered making a gift to the Playhouse in your will? Legacy Gifts are one of the easiest and most flexible ways to give.



These are easy to give and can offer you great tax advantages. If you’ve held the stock for more than 1 year, you can make a gift of publicly-traded stock to The Duluth Playhouse and avoid paying capital gains tax on the transaction. Your broker can make the transaction upon your authorization and will inform The Duluth Playhouse.



The now permanently extended IRA Charitable Rollover law allows individuals 70 1/2 or older to give up to $100,000 directly from their IRA to one or more qualified charities without paying federal income tax on the withdrawal. You may choose to make a qualified charitable distribution from your IRA to The Duluth Playhouse.



Take your giving to the next level with a matching gift. Contact your employer’s human resources department to see if they have a matching gift program.



Non-cash donations are also essential to the Playhouse’s operations. These can include but are not limited to, housing and vehicles for visiting guest artists; unique or vintage clothing and household items that may be used for props or costumes. We have limited storage space, so please call before dropping your items off.
