CHAMPION NEW WORK

When you give to the Playwrights’ Center, you support the brave, talented playwrights who are creating new work for the American stage.

Consistent support from donors like you allows the Playwrights’ Center to manifest its programs based on artistic risk—not ticket sales—and keep our public season free and accessible. With about 90% of the costs of each season donated by individuals and funding partners, your gift is incredibly important to what we do. We work hard to remain financially secure so we can make sure your donations go to the heart of the Playwrights’ Center: the playwrights who call the Center home and the new plays they create and share.

Your support makes all the difference!
We’ll make it as easy as possible, whether you’d like to give a lump sum, in monthly installments, or as a stock transfer to save on capital gains tax. Click the donate button to use your credit card to make a secure donation or mail your gift to the address below.
