You can advance an exciting new future for Olney Theatre Center.

Together we will ensure that Olney Theatre Center remains a world-class cultural treasure for generations to come. As of June 2023, we have raised $28.5 million to revitalize and expand Olney Theatre's campus. With $5.5 million left to raise in the capital campaign, we hope you will join us by investing in Staging the Future.

Gifts may be made at one time or with a pledge to be paid over several years. All gifts will be recognized on our website and gifts of $250 or more will be recognized in production programs and in our lobby. Gifts above $10,000 will be etched in a new donor wall in the renovated lobby of the 1938 Original Theatre.

We are also pleased to offer several naming opportunities for major gifts, available throughout our campus. To find out more about how you can be a part of Olney Theatre Center's future, please contact Dina Goldman at or call 240-722-6033.
