You know City Lights is a major cultural asset. 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 a pricey 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.

Please donate and help us keep creating innovative theater during a challenging rebuilding time for our industry. In addition to accepting cash and in-kind donations, City Lights offers many ways to give. Contact us at or 408-295-4200 with questions.
