Support The Fresnel Theater

Make your tax-deductible donation today!
We provide high quality improv entertainment at a reasonable cost. Unfortunately that means we can't depend on ticket sales alone to make ends meet. We need your support in order to make sure we can continue to offer shows and fulfill our commitments of making sure everyone can have access to funny.

One-Time Donation

By making a one time donation to our theater, you are helping us to fulfill our mission of building community through comedy.

Our commitment to our community goes beyond just our classes and shows. We've promised to:

  • never turn a child away from a class based on inability to pay
  • have free level one classes for those who are unemployed

With your support we'll be able to expand our programs. Plus you get your name on a plaque, so that's cool too. Can we count on your support to help us meet our thrice yearly goal of $3,500?
