Why should I support Hennepin Theatre Trust?

Your support helps us fulfill our mission of creating positive change through the arts. Whether it’s a family attending a Broadway show for the first time at a historic theatre, to a local artist transforming a vacant storefront into an urban art installation — we exist to make the arts a part of your everyday life.

When you give to the Trust, you support:

  • the hundreds of artists bringing visual art to underused spaces;
  • the thousands of students and families across Minnesota engaged in our community education programming;
  • and the millions who visit WeDo™, the West Downtown MPLS Cultural District, and experience our urban performing arts center every year.
