We care deeply about our community and recognize the difficult times we are all working through as a city and a country.  We also understand that everyone is experiencing their own unique circumstance.

As a nonprofit arts and science organization, closing our doors meant a substantial loss of income. Funds from performance tickets, museum admissions and education classes make up the largest part of our revenue and are vital to our financial stability. This closure greatly affected our ability to share the arts and sciences with everyone in the community.

If you are able, we ask you to consider supporting the Washington Pavilion during this time to ensure that we can continue to inspire, educate, entertain and enrich our region. Your generous gift helps to support awe-inspiring shows, breathtaking art exhibitions and hands-on learning opportunities for children across the community.

We’re committed to the future of our organization, and we're excited to welcome you back through our doors. 

If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to help us continue during this unprecedented time, you can do so here
