Individual Donation

Year-End Giving

Your gift helps create new memories, share new stories, and impact more lives for the new year.

Like most nonprofit theatres, ticket sales only cover about 60% of our total budget and we rely on donations by individuals like you to help make our mission possible – especially because we are committed to keeping ticket prices and program fees affordable.
As we close out 2018 and prepare for the New Year, two urgent and important needs lay heavy on the Wagon Wheel.
  1. A mandatory update to our fire alarm and safety system. Approximate cost: $15,000
  2. New furnace for White Hill Manor, the old B&B located next door to the theatre. Wagon Wheel was gifted this historic home to use for actor and season crew housing. This winter, a furnace went went out and needs replaced. Approximate cost: $10,000
Not only are these repairs a necessity to our operation and production, but your giving at the end of the year will provide funds to lift us into 2019. End of year giving comes at a critical time for the Wagon Wheel and your gift will help us cover these repairs and put more funding into our youth dance and acting classes and engaging community events like Center Street Community Theatre and Symphony of the Lakes.
Our goal is to raise $25,000 by January 1st. Just this week, donors like you gave $1,000 of that goal – Thank you. Your giving is vital to keep momentum going and help us meet that goal! The Wagon Wheel actors and musicians produce these incredible performances and concerts each year, but we can’t do it without your support. As we approach 2019, lets work together to make future memories and stories of the Wagon Wheel possible.
Give today and play a part in writing the future stories of the Wagon Wheel.
