Generations of Minnesotans have been introduced to great theater through the work at the Guthrie. From the very beginning, Guthrie donors have been more than observers of our work.

Financial support by those who believe in the work of the Guthrie is an essential part of creating great theater. As a nonprofit theater, gifts from individuals, businesses, government and foundations underwrite one-third of the Guthrie's annual operating budget and are the means by which we create beautifully-crafted productions, keep ticket prices affordable and offer stimulating education programs. Across the nation and around the world, the Guthrie Theater is known for artistic excellence and educational innovation -- made possible because of this support.

The Guthrie offers an array of benefits which makes getting involved rewarding and enjoyable. Benefits are offered at varying levels of support and appeal to a wide range of interests.
