Give to the Max 2019


Learn more about becoming a donor

Save the date for Minnesota’s annual giving day! We invite you to make a huge impact on the lives of young people across the state by donating on Give to the Max Day on Thursday, November 14.

Give to the Max Day donations will support our statewide education program, Spotlight Education. Through Spotlight Education, Hennepin Theatre Trust helps nearly 8,000 students in more than 100 high schools annually. The program supplements and enhances arts curricula through production assessments, masterclasses, and theater review writing, increasing equitable access to quality musical theater education.

The result? Collaborative, creative and confident young people.

Would you like to double your impact this year? Then join us for the Lunchtime Challenge! Make your gift online between the hours of 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. CST. Any funds received during this window will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $10,000.

The lounge is open prior to every Bank of America Broadway on Hennepin performance and features complimentary wine, beer and refreshments as well as access to additional restrooms before the show and at intermission. Give to the Max contributions will count toward your annual donation.

Help us create life-changing arts experiences. Give now to enhance the lives of more than 8,000 high school students for students across the state and help us build stronger communities around Minnesota.
