Donations in Action

Your support of Tacoma Arts Live energizes the community! Your donation spotlights the artists of today and educates the artists of tomorrow. Together, we’ve built a community that enlightens and enriches people’s lives.

Philanthropic support is integral to our ability to continue to fulfill our mission. Here at Tacoma Arts Live, subscriptions, ticket sales, and other earned revenues only cover 73% of annual operations. That means we must raise more than $1.3 million annually to bring the kind of services that you -- and our entire community -- have come to expect. We treasure the value our donors have placed on our efforts to share incredible experiences with everyone. Your gift today will help fill the season with brand new adventures and discoveries for all!
