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.


If you prefer to send a check, you can make it out to the Carolina Theatre of Durham and send it to the Development Office at 309 West Morgan Street, Durham, NC 27701, Attn: Treat Harvey

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. 

Memberships & Donations
We appreciate gifts of any size…and a donation of $120 or more to our general fund automatically enrolls you in our Carolina Stars membership program. Star Members receive invitations to special events, access to premium seats not available to the general public and fee-free online tickets ordering. In addition, donors of $120 or more will be listed in Show Time, the tri-annual magazine of the Carolina Theatre.  See our full list of benefits.

Sustaining Memberships
By dividing your annual Membership donation into monthly payments, you can make your donation of $120 or more a Sustaining Membership and provide the theater with a stable source of income to sustain the programming you value.  An added benefit to you is the convenience of smaller automatic monthly payments!
