Legacy Giving Program

The Washington Pavilion is the region’s home for the arts, entertainment and science. Since opening its doors in 1999, the Washington Pavilion has become a hallmark of the Sioux Falls community and has helped to enrich the culture of our state, city and thriving downtown. More than 2.9 million people have seen a performance, attended a conference or participated in a special event since it was established and over 1.6 million visitors have passed through the Washington Pavilion’s Kirby Science Discovery Center’s doors since its inception. Annually, more than 34,000 children experience the Washington Pavilion through its diverse programming, and 14,000 of those children are provided those enriching experiences and opportunities for free. None of this would have been possible without the help of generous supporters like you.

Legacy Giving Program

The Washington Pavilion launched the Legacy Giving Program in 2018 to formally recognize and honor donors who make a commitment to the future support of the Washington Pavilion through a planned gift. These individuals help ensure that the Washington Pavilion is around for future generations and serves as an inspiration for others to do the same.
