The Kennedy Center

Project Support

To support the Kennedy Center’s expansion and meet the growing demand for more interactive, intimate, and experiential programming, the Center has launched the Building the Future Campaign, which will provide the necessary resources to allow the Center to push boundaries with artist-centric programming, showcase both traditional and experimental works, and construct the facilities needed to house these initiatives and even more expanded offerings.

Your support of the Building the Future Campaign will help make these dreams a reality by supporting both the construction of the Center's first-ever expansion and the diverse programming that makes us the nation’s premier performing arts center. Our sincere thanks to Kennedy Center Chairman David M. Rubenstein for his generous leadership investment, as well as to the many longtime donors and friends who provided substantial support during the early phase of this campaign.

A campaign of this scale requires participation at all levels in order to succeed. It is hoped that all those who interact with the Center—patrons, students, educators, supporters, volunteers, and visitors—will feel drawn to this important and significant project. We cannot do it without you!

We appreciate your support in helping us build the future!
