Your Commitment Sets the Stage
For theatre, education and history at Ford’s Theatre
You may be drawn to Ford’s Theatre for its unique place in American history, its entertaining plays and musicals or its dynamic education programs—or all three! You are in good company, joining visitors from around the country and across the globe.
Ford’s Theatre relies on a unique partnership of public and private support. Your gift to Ford’s Theatre sustains many vital programs planned for the coming year, including:
- Local students celebrating Lincoln’s birthday by studying his most influential speeches and performing them on the historic Ford’s Theatre stage
- Our beloved annual production of A Christmas Carol, which has become a multi-generational holiday tradition for many families
- More than 750,000 anticipated visitors discovering something new about Lincoln’s presidency, assassination and legacy through dynamic exhibits featuring key artifacts, comprehensive maps and timelines, little-known facts and moving memorial tributes
But we can’t do it without your help. Please consider a generous gift today to ensure that Lincoln’s legacy lives!
Donate $100 or more before December 31, 2013, and we will send you our popular, limited-edition 2014 Ford’s Theatre calendar.
