Your Support is Critical to Our Success

The Carolina Theatre of Durham, Inc. is a non-profit 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.

90th Anniversary Campaign

In the spirit of public-private partnership, and in recognition of the value that the Carolina Theatre brings to Downtown Durham, the City of Durham has made an extraordinary commitment to help the Theatre by offering a community challenge: The City will match all new private contributions to the Theatre, up to $600,000.
