The Arts and make a difference today.

The Arts

Wagon Wheel is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that belongs to your community.

Your gift will share the magic, strengthen our community, and lift peoples’ spirits when they need it most.

From scholarships, program expansion, and the magic you see on stage, the Wagon Wheel Fund provides the financial resources needed to strengthen the artistic excellence of the Wagon Wheel and meet emerging needs in our community.

Donate today to take part in our Day of Giving and to help us reach our $50,000 goal. Donations towards Day of Giving help strengthen the educational opportunities for professionals and youth this summer season. Join and play a role in sharing the magic!

Why give to Wagon Wheel?

  • Your gifts make it possible for the Wagon Wheel to give more than 5,000 students each year scholarships or free and reduced ticket prices to participate and experience the arts.
  • Your donations give more than 100 artists each year employment in the arts – together, you have given thousands of future stars of Broadway, Hollywood, and around the world the chance to shine!
