The Hillbarn Theatre has a robust giving program for all types of donations. Whether you are giving individually, matching gifts, or including us in your future, there’s an avenue for you.
Hillbarn Theatre would not be the company it is today without the help of theater lovers like you who surround and support us. Hillbarn Theatre is widely recognized as a beacon of artistic quality where talent is discovered and nurtured by a passionate, supportive community. The majority of our gifts come from individuals and families making community giving our largest source of unearned income (funds derived from sources other than ticket sales). We wish to thank you in advance for making your personal donation here.
