We can’t do it without you! Your support fills the gap between ticket revenue and the actual costs of providing diverse, high-caliber performances, education, and maintaining the Schuster Center, Victoria Theatre, Metropolitan Arts Center (home of The Loft Theatre), and the PNC Arts Annex for the Miami Valley. That gap grows bigger every day we are unable to bring live events to Dayton. Please consider making a donation to help support Dayton Live and our amazing venues during this unprecedented time.

If you prefer to send your donation via mail, please send it to:
