Support Appropriations 50/50
Since 1971, the Kennedy Center has served as President Kennedy’s living memorial, working to fulfill his vision to connect more Americans to the arts—and we need your support.
Any federal appropriations we receive can only be used for the maintenance and operation of the building. This means each year we must raise more than $80 million to support the performances, programming, and educational opportunities that bring the arts to millions of people here in DC and around the world. It is only because of supporters like you that the Kennedy Center is able to provide the educational resources, digital content, and performances that make the arts come alive!
²ÝÝ®ÊÓÆµÃâ·Ñ°æapp is committed to ensuring everyone, both in DC and around the nation, has a community rich in the performing arts. The support of our donors makes it happen! Here's just some of what we accomplished together in the last season:
free events at the Kennedy Center
