Playhouse Square- Our Impact

Support Playhouse Square

Playhouse Square is a not-for-profit organization that positively impacts our community. However, proceeds from ticket sales alone do not fully cover our operating costs. We rely on the generous support of foundations, corporations and individuals like you to meet our annual need of more than $6 million.

The largest performing arts center outside of New York, Playhouse Square is unique, both locally and nationally, for its sound financial stewardship, wise foresight and lasting impact. This support enables us to bring a diverse selection of quality performances to Cleveland, provide community engagement and education programming and create a destination for entertainment, business and living.

Make your gift today and take pride in supporting a significant community asset. In addition, you’ll enjoy exclusive benefits including the opportunity to purchase tickets before public sales begin, priority seating, invitations to members-only events and much more.
