Individual Giving



Individual giving is the backbone of Lookingglass Theatre Company’s ability to fulfill its ambitious artistic and educational missions. The generous support of individuals like you, who graciously offer tax-deductible contributions, is an integral factor in our theatre’s ability to serve as one of Chicago’s leading cultural organizations.

Because ticket sales only account for 50% of Lookingglass’ operating expenses, we depend on the generosity of individuals like you to ensure the stability and longevity of our organization. We appreciate every contribution, regardless of size.
