Help set the stage!

The Trust relies on the generosity of individuals like you to help sustain the cultural and economic growth of Pittsburgh's Cultural District. Presenting world-class performing and visual arts is demanding and as a non-profit, the Trust cannot rely on ticket-sales alone. The Trust maintains the Benedum Center, Byham Theater, Cabaret at Theater Square, O'Reilly Theater and Harris Theater and numerous art galleries in which the Trust and resident companies present a wide variety of productions - this is a costly venture.

The Trust's Education and Community Outreach Department hosts a range of educational programming which provides arts encounters that many people would not otherwise experience. The Trust promotes public art and parks, parking enhancements and improved lighting and safety throughout the Cultural District. Did we mention the free festivals produced by the Trust including the International Children's Theater, Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival, First Night® Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh Festival of Lights?

We cannot do any of this without you. As a Partners or Circles member you will help us reach our 10,000 Member Challenge and receive fantastic benefits in return.
