Individual Giving

Wheelock Family Theatre is committed to bringing the transformative power of theatre within the reach of all youth in the greater Boston area. We hope you will consider a gift to help support making more unique arts opportunities available.

Each year WFT is able to offer more than $100,000 in tuition assistance and scholarships for our Education Classes. That support for students, as well as making productions like our recent virtual workshop of Make Way for Ducklings free, is thanks, in large part, to the generosity of our extended family. All of us at WFT thank you for participating and sharing in the magic of theatre.


Live theatre transforms lives!
