Make A Donation

As a not-for-profit arts and community organization, charitable contributions are vital to our mission of producing world-class theater while serving Chicago with our nationally-recognized education and engagement programs.

The Goodman is a “producing theater,” which means that we build the majority of our plays under our own roof, in the heart of the Loop. We annually employ nearly 600 of the best artists, artisans and arts administrators of our community. And 90% of the talent you see on our stages is local.  

But none of it is possible without you. And we need you now more than ever.

We have heard from many audience members asking how to help in these uncertain times. Your gift right now will help us raise the curtain when we return—and until then, it will provide the resources to support Goodman artists and staff, along with virtual education programs, continued work on our productions and our ability to communicate news with our patrons, students, teachers and storytellers.

Thank you for supporting the Goodman, the arts and those who create art. We look forward to seeing you again soon.


Please consider adding a tax-deductible gift.

Your support is crucial to the success of our productions and programming.
