Why Your Support Is Needed
Presenting the world’s finest performing artists and companies is a noble and inspiring task; however, ticket sales and rental income don’t begin to cover the full costs.
As a non-profit organization, the Kauffman Center’s mission is to provide a wide range of diverse performing arts experiences to everyone in the community and we work hard to keep ticket costs and rental fees in an accessible range. To achieve our mission, the Kauffman Center must annually raise 26% of our total revenue from charitable contributions.
We are able to offer outstanding programming and support the excellent work of our resident companies thanks to the generous gifts of thousands of individual community members each year.
The Kauffman Center is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
