Supporting the Arts with Your Treasure

The Kirkland Fine Arts Center Friends Program is an opportunity for our valued patrons to share their love of the fine and performing arts with others. Support groups like the Friends of Kirkland and corporate sponsors create 60% of the funding non-profit arts organizations use each year for programming. This means that only about 40% of revenue comes from ticket sales. This is true nationally, at places like Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago or the MET in New York City, and it is especially true at Kirkland Fine Arts Center. Your contribution sustains a wide array of visual, performing, and educational arts events both at the Center and around the Decatur area throughout the year. Kirkland Fine Arts Center would like to thank all of our previous and current Friends members for their support over the past 40 years! Click here to donate now.
