Donation Questions

What does it mean when you say “Fairmont Opera House is a non-profit theater”?

We’re a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, just like your local church, which means we’re tax-exempt. When you contribute to our cause, you’ll receive a year-end tax letter detailing your donations, allowing you to claim tax deductions. Our organization is run by dedicated staff members and overseen by a board of directors. Despite being a small non-profit, we make a significant economic impact on our community. Our funding comes mainly from individual donors, business sponsors, and grants. Ticket sales only account for a small percentage of our revenue each year because we strive to keep ticket prices affordable for everyone in our community.
