Become a KPC Donor


With the support of our incredible community, Kirkland Performance Center has brought artists of the highest caliber from all across the globe right here to the Eastside – and nurtured our own local performing arts community. In September 2023, we launched our brand-new community arts and education programming at KPC Studios.

When you give to KPC, your your generosity will:

  • Give over 50,000 people each year access to the performing arts – including those who otherwise can’t afford it
  • Maintain and improve our unique venue and our ability to create intimate audience experiences with the world-class artists on our stage
  • Provide a platform and an audience for local emerging artists
  • Support collaborations with other Eastside arts partners that make the most of our community’s collective performing arts resources and funding
  • Catalyze the creation new programs and transformative experiences for young people interested in the performing arts through KPC STUDIOS!

Qualified Charitable Donations
Are you over the age of 72? Do you have an individual retirement account (IRA)? Are you a fan of Kirkland Performance Center?

A QCD can help you reach your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) without having to pay income taxes on the amount of your donation. You save on your taxes and help bring the arts to Kirkland.
