DOUBLE Your Impact

Ford’s Theatre Society invites you to preserve Lincoln’s legacy with a generous donation so that we can continue to provide comprehensive programming to people like you. If you donate by April 30, your gift will be doubled thanks to a matching grant from Share Fund.

You may not know it, but Ford’s has many faces. Yes, we are Ford’s Theatre: Ford’s presents four mainstage productions each year that allow patrons to reexamine history and connect more deeply with our 16th President. More than 83,500 patrons attended a production here last year. But, we do so much more!

American history lives at Ford’s Theatre. The Ford’s Theatre campus, including the museum and rotating exhibitions in our Center for Education and Leadership, offers visitors a first-hand look at Lincoln’s presidency and assassination, the Civil War and the impact of all these events today. Approximately 550,000 people visit the campus each year.

Ford’s Theatre also educates the next generation of history-lovers and arts-enthusiasts through a variety of oratory, arts and museum-based learning activities, which are designed specifically to strengthen literacy, performance and leadership skills in students. Our local education programs serve almost 5,000 students every year, while our national offerings educate more than 250,000 young people annually.

Will you make a donation to help us honor Abraham Lincoln’s legacy?
