Where Your Money Goes

Northwest Children’s Theater and School receives 65-75% of its income from ticket sales and tuition.  Charitable foundations, corporations and individuals help us to fill the gap with donations that support NWCT’s award-winning programs.  These donations underwrite the full scope of NWCT’s artistic and educational programming, and are occasionally identified to support a particular project or capital improvement.  Click here to make a donation today.
Here are some specific ways our donors are making a difference at NWCT today:
  • $100            Pays for 28 underserved students to see a school matinee
  • $250            Pays one scholarship to an NWCT theater class
  • $500            Pays for mic batteries and maintenance for one Mainstage show
  • $750            Pays for the raw materials to construct one Mainstage set
  • $1,000          Pays for the theater’s electricity for one month
  • $2,500          Pays for a theater arts residency at an area school
  • $5,000          Pays for print media advertising for one Mainstage show
  • $10,000        Pays the printing and mailing of a season brochure

Donors wishing to discuss gifts larger than $10,000, multi-year gifts, challenge grants, estate giving or endowments are invited to contact NWCT Managing Director Judy Kafoury.

Seeing a play or taking a class at NWCT is often a child’s first introduction to the arts in Portland.  By providing meaningful support to NWCT, our donors ensure that NWCT’s award-winning programming remains available, accessible and affordable.  An investment in NWCT today also ensures there will be future generations of patrons and supporters for other cultural institutions, like the ballet, symphony, opera and museums.
