Through the support of donors, business sponsors and grant makers such as the Tennessee Arts Commission, WPT is able to provide quality professional theatre and arts education to the Southern Middle Tennessee community. Income from ticket sales covers only a small portion of our budget; the rest is earned through tax-deductible donations from individuals and businesses and through grants. You can support the local arts community by making a one-time donation or setting up a recurring donation today.

Recurring donations in any amount can be set up to charge your card monthly, quarterly, or yearly. Recurring donations can be open-ended or can include an end date. Every gift of $5 or $10 monthly helps sustain our mission to provide quality culture and education to the community!

Here are just a few reasons to support WPT with your donation or business sponsorship:

  • Approximately 70% of our annual budget goes to pay artistic personnel – all residents of Middle Tennessee, many who live right here in Maury County
  • Between artist pay, goods and materials, and advertising services, nearly 90% of our budget is spent in Southern Middle Tennessee, supporting locally-owned businesses and contributing to local economic growth
  • Communities with strong arts initiatives are more attractive to new residents and businesses

Donations by check can be mailed to:
