Thanks for your support

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 continue to face a devastating loss of earned revenue.

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

Since our stages went dark in March, we received contributions and ticket donations from thousands of donors, and we’re deeply grateful. Your support means the world to us and the future of the Guthrie.

Although our One Guthrie campaign has ended, you may donate at any time.

We met the match

Thank you to the generous supporters who helped us meet 100% of our One Guthrie match fund in August. Thousands of patrons contributed more than $600,000 to meet the match, and these critical funds are already working help sustain the theater, support our artists and prepare for future seasons.

How your support helps

While our stages are dark, your gifts are helping us:

  • Grow the Guthrie Family Fund, a resource to help artists and staff in need
  • Offset millions in lost ticket revenue
  • Maintain our building until we can safely reopen
  • Prepare for our next season of extraordinary productions

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.
