The Campaign


GUARANTEEING THE FUTURE OF NWA'S THEATRE

 

TheatreSquared’s Our Next Stage Campaign seeks to raise special funds to create Northwest Arkansas’s first permanent home for professional theatre and guarantee the future of this cultural and educational anchor for decades to come. 

This $34 million effort includes:

  • $31.5 million to fund the design, construction and equipping of a facility including two state-of-the-art theatres, dedicated rehearsal space, offices, education and community spaces, production workshops, eight guest artist apartments, outdoor terraces and patios, and an open-all-day public commons
     
  • $2.5 million to establish the TheatreSquared Trust, a new artistic, educational and operating reserve to provide for the company’s secure future

Join Us


With more than $21 million committed toward a $34 million goal, a broad cross-section of Northwest Arkansas has pledged their support for a shared vision of a landmark, permanent home for professional theatre in Northwest Arkansas. We invite you to join us and this community of arts patrons with your gift to the Our Next Stage Campaign—and help us to make this vision a reality.

FOUR-YEAR TERM

To allow for stretch commitments and donor flexibility, campaign pledges may be fulfilled in annual payments over a four-year period beginning in 2017. Pledges of $50,000 or more may be fulfilled over a five-year period. 

TAX BENEFITS

All contributions to the Our Next Stage Campaign are tax-deductible. TheatreSquared's staff is available to consult with you to ensure that however you choose to give—whether a direct contribution, gift of stock or securities, IRA transfer, Qualified Charitable Distribution, or gift of property—is maximally tax efficient. Please call Jamey McGaugh at (479) 445-6333 for more details.

PERMANENT RECOGNITIONS

In gratitude for your support, TheatreSquared offers recognition opportunities to all Campaign donors — which will remain prominently visible as this new cultural landmark serves as a gathering place for hundreds of thousands of community members and Arkansas students for generations to come.
