Baltimore Center Stage: Thank You Donors

Thank You Donors

The following list includes individual and foundation gifts of $250 or more made to the Baltimore Center Stage Annual Fund in the last eighteen months. Although space limitations make it impossible for us to list everyone who helps fund our artistic, education, and community programs, we are enormously grateful to each person who contributes to Baltimore Center Stage. We couldn’t do it without you!

The Baltimore Center Stage Society represents donors who, through their annual contributions of $1,500 or more, provide special opportunities for our artists and audiences. Society members are actively involved through special events, theater-related travel, and behind-the-scenes conversations with theater artists.
