For the last 110 years, The Englert has existed at the will of our community. Carried onward through fire, flood, pandemic, and countless challenges, we have ceaselessly worked to achieve our mission: to inspire and activate positive community growth through the arts.
Through each tribulation, we’ve been able to rely on the support of our members — those who give $10 or more a month. Thank you. This generous support has allowed us to employ over 60 people while investing in programs and outreach that make our area a great place to live and visit. Will you continue to sustain the Arts by contributing today?
As we look to the future, we’re committed to taking our place as our community’s performing arts presenter. To this end, we’ve increased our programming by over 33%, offering an even more diverse array of genres, artists, and art forms than ever before.
Unfortunately, audiences have not yet returned to pre-pandemic levels and we have sustained a 1/3 reduction in ticket sales. Reduced ticket sales paired with growing expenses will make this the third year of financial challenges for our organization.
While we prepare for these challenges in the near term, there remains much to be excited for. We’re creating plans to increase literary arts programming, expand our educational programming, and solidify our commitment to diversity. We anticipate that you’ll see these changes and many more as a result of our recently completed strategic planning process. While change is at hand, we will continue to bring even more nationally renown and emerging artists to our stage. If you believe in the work we’re doing, please consider joining, renewing, or upgrading your membership in our Friends program. Will you invest in our future today?
As our thank you to you, all membership gifts come with great benefits and can be made securely online at englert.org/friends. And don’t forget, the more you give, the more you get. Who doesn’t love early access and exclusive deals to your favorite shows?
Whether you’re a donor or ticket buyer, we’re so thankful for your support. We’re here for you. We’re here because of you. We can’t do it without you.
