There are many ways to support City Lights, from making an online donation to giving while you shop, donating goods, or including the theater in your plans.
Why and How to Give
You know City Lights is a major cultural asset in our community. Perhaps you value our artistic quality, the exuberance of our shows, or our risk-taking scripts? Whatever the reason, we’re glad you’re here. In an expensive area that’s tough for nonprofits, we’re proud that City Lights, a registered 501(c)(3), closed 16 straight years in the black before Covid-19.
During the shutdown, we stayed busy with a new online series, podcast channel, and other creative endeavors — and kept all regular staff employed and deployed, with no mandatory furloughs. We were thrilled to reopen for our 2021-22 season, and continue to present high-quality theater, even as rebuilding remains a challenge for us and our industry as a whole.
Please donate and help us keep creating innovative theater for you in this time of rebuilding. In addition to accepting cash and in-kind donations, City Lights offers many ways to make your gift, and benefits for giving. Please contact us at email@example.com or 408-295-4200 with questions or other ideas. Thank you!
These generous friends — corporate, foundation and organization supporters, along with individual donors — keep our lights shining brightly. Applause to all.
Corporate sponsors make it possible for us to reach and grow beyond our wildest dreams. And theater people dream big.
Join our producers’ circle and be a part of City Lights’ storytelling on a whole new level. As a bonus, the perks are fabulous.
Next year, we’ll celebrate our 41st anniversary! Stay tuned for details about the 2024 gala.
Are you a a dreamer, an innovator, a game-changer? You never know how far your donated dollars will go.
