An emergency relief campaign

Like many performing arts organizations, the Guthrie has been hit hard by the COVID-19 crisis. With hundreds of performances canceled in our current and upcoming seasons, we face a devastating loss of earned revenue. 

To rise to this challenge, we launched One Guthrie, an emergency relief campaign that will sustain the theater, establish a fund to help support artists and staff and ensure our ability to reopen in the strongest way possible.

We need your support in this critical moment. Thank you for making a gift today to secure the Guthrie’s future.

One Guthrie, twice the impact

More than $500,000 has been pledged to match new and increased gifts to the One Guthrie campaign, with nearly 45% ($230,000) matched to-date. Please consider a gift to help us meet the match and double your support for the theater in this moment of need.

How your support helps

Your gift will help the Guthrie:

  • Establish the Guthrie Family Fund, a resource to help support artists and staff in need
  • Offset production costs for shows canceled due to COVID-19
  • Maintain our facility and keep it secure until we can reopen to the public
  • Help us prepare for next season by supporting the months of work required before Opening Night

The meaning behind One Guthrie 

Moments of crisis call for us to pull together. One Guthrie reflects the spirit of unity that is central to this moment and the work of the Guthrie in all times — to connect the community we serve to one another and the world through stories that ignite the imagination and stir the heart.
