As a non-profit theatre, Lookingglass depends on tax-deductible contributions to fuel its mission to change, charge, and empower our community and audiences through theatre. By contributing to these efforts, you complete this vital creative work. 



The Looking Forward Campaign was launched in May 2020 to sustain Lookingglass’ staff, artists, and mission while sheltering in place through the COVID-19 pandemic. Our inability to produce live performances means that ticket sales can no longer provide essential operating revenue. Currently, the generosity of our donors and community is the only means to continue the Company.

The arts are critical at a time like this, and will be even more so when we emerge from this crisis. As a non-profit theatre, Lookingglass relies on your donations –now more than ever– to support our staff and artists, prepare for future seasons, and serve our virtual audiences, students, teachers, and entire community.

We’re still committed to doing our part. But we cannot do it alone.

Please consider donating whatever you can to provide critical relief to the Lookingglass Theatre family.


  • $50 Keep the Lights On

    There is no Lookingglass without the dedicated and creative staff. Your gift helps provide health insurance, income, and stability to our employees and creative teams through this crisis.

  • $100 Fuel Future Productions

    Even though there are no in-person rehearsals, eight of our resident artists are still busy writing their own new works that may appear in upcoming Lookingglass seasons. We need your help to keep the creativity flowing!

  • $250 Keep Creative at Home

    The value of an arts education is immense. Your kind gift means another student can take a virtual class or summer camp with our teaching artists. Help us keep our students creative and our teaching artists employed!

  • $500 Safe and Secure Workforce

    Your gift of $500 covers the monthly cost to provide health insurance to one Lookingglass employee. Your support keeps our staff covered with healthcare while they create new solutions to bring you the theatre you love safely.

  • $1,000 Connected Community

    Your gift provides the cloud-based software for staff to work safely from home for a whole month. Sustaining our collaborative teams until they can safely return to their offices is key to our future successes and artistry.

  • $2,500 Looking Forward

    With the enthusiastic partnership of all our artists and creators, help us continue to provide you content that will bring us together—virtually. Your gift will help us pay the royalties and hosting fees to keep content coming and our artists employed. 

  • $5,000 Build the Future

    Every production needs a place to design and construct pieces of the story’s world and stage. $5,000 covers half the monthly cost to maintain our shop where piece by piece Lookingglass magic is constructed.

  • $10,000 Return to the Stage

    Our artists are eagerly awaiting the chance to jump back into rehearsal, backed by your incredible support. With a season of all original works ahead, your gift will help assemble the teams, cast, and magic of the next year for a triumphant return.
