Areas of Impact & Investment

Building a Stronger Community

The arts help us express our values, build bridges between cultures, and connect the community regardless of ethnicity, religion or age. Your support will provide meaningful experiences and programs while deepening our community connections. The Herberger Theater is playing a much more active role in bringing the audience and the art together. This is helping us to engage more artists, arts organizations and audiences from throughout the community.

Providing a Vital Cultural Link in our Community – Inclusion in the Arts for All

An important part of the Herberger Theater Center’s mission is to provide outreach and educational programs – sharing the arts with youth and underprivileged community members and making the arts accessible to all.

We believe that cost should not be a barrier to coming to the theater. Your support creates free or low-cost opportunities for all to enjoy the magic of live performances, including Wolf Trap, Theater Camp, Performance Pop-Ups, Lunch Time Theater and First Friday Live.

Resiliency - Now and In the Future

Your gift will support live theater experiences and help offset our costs to keep rental rates affordable to performing companies. An endowment will strengthen the long-term viability of the Herberger Theater Center and expand the impact of the arts in the community today while making it viable for future generations.

The arts are a vibrant, year-round attraction in downtown Phoenix. A vibrant arts scene will inspire and foster more arts and more audiences. More arts and more audiences mean more business for restaurants, shops, and hotels, and more jobs that will further boost the economy.
