Your Support is Critical to Our Success

Carolina Theatre of Durham, Inc. is a nonprofit organization.  When you donate to the Carolina Theatre, you help sustain a tradition of support for the arts in Durham -- and your donation is tax-deductible.  Your contribution will help maintain the overall operation of the theater, covering artist fees, film costs, utilities, staff salaries, and other infrastructure expenses that are essential to maintaining the high quality arts experiences our patrons have come to expect in the heart of Downtown Durham.

We hope you will consider a gift of $100 (or an amount that is personally meaningful to you) to our Annual Fund.  Donations can be made online or over the phone by calling 919-560-2801. We need the community’s support to offer our great programming, underwrite free tickets for Durham Public Schools children and host the many community events that call the Carolina Theatre home.


Star Memberships & Donations

We appreciate gifts of any size…and a donation of $150 or more to our general fund automatically enrolls you in our Carolina Star Member program.  Star Members receive invitations to special events, reduced-fee ticket ordering, and other benefits depending on membership level.  See our full list of benefits.

Sustaining Memberships:  By allowing us to divide your annual membership donation into monthly payments, you can make your donation of $150 or more a Sustaining Membership.
