Community Impact

The arts are a part of the social fabric in our community. Garden Theatre takes great pride in bringing unique arts experiences to children and families who otherwise would not have access to such programs. Last season, Garden Theatre hosted 176 free and reduced-cost community outreach events to serve young people, families and veterans. Garden Theatre also offers a military discount for all active duty and retired military members with a valid military ID.

Garden Theatre partners with several other nonprofit organizations including:
• Boys and Girls Club of Central Florida
• Matthew’s Hope
• Center for Independent Living
• Camaraderie Foundation
• East Winter Garden Community Initiative

These are just some of the ways your gift directly impacts the Garden Theatre:
General Support meets the greatest need of the organization
Education and Outreach provides arts education and experiences to young people, families and veterans.
New Work Development impacts a work’s journey from commission to premiere.

In-Kind Giving

Another way to support our work is through in-kind giving.  Garden Theatre benefits from a variety of donated materials, supplies and professional services throughout the year.
