Why and How to Support City Lights
As one of our patrons, you know that City Lights is a major cultural asset in our community. Perhaps you value our artistic quality, the fun and exuberance of our productions, or our innovative, risk-taking plays? Or maybe it’s our intimate venue, welcoming atmosphere, affordable ticket prices and friendly staff that keep you coming back. Whatever the reason, we’re glad that you are a part of the City Lights family.
Please donate now and help us continue creating innovative theater. In addition to accepting online cash donations, City Lights offers a variety of ways to make your gift, and a number of benefits for giving. Although the economy creates challenges for all arts organizations, we are proud that City Lights has closed the last 13 consecutive years in the black. Your patronage is an essential part of our success, and we sincerely thank you.
In-kind donations of goods and services are also needed and appreciated! Please contact us to talk about how your resources may match your needs.
All cash donations of $120 or more may be made by enrolling in our monthly automatic-donation program. Please contact us at 408-295-4200 for more information. Thank you!
