Friends of the Centre

Donations of any amount are deeply appreciated and form the core of our ability to sustain our mission of making the cultural arts affordable and accessible to our entire community. 

Since 2013, the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre has established itself as the premier place our community gathers to celebrate the arts. Like everyone else, we struggled to make it through the pandemic and even closed our doors for a few months. But thanks to our community’s support, which has been nothing short of amazing, we have come back better than ever.

The Town of Wake Forest has always been a strong supporter of the Renaissance Centre and the arts in general, but our success ultimately depends on the generosity of people like you!

We want to personally invite you to be a founding member of our Friends of the Centre. A $100 donation will help us continue to make the arts affordable and accessible to everyone in our community.

But that’s not all!

Your tax-deductible donation will allow you to purchase up to four tickets before they go on sale to the public. This will give you the opportunity to claim the best seats for upcoming performances that offer reserved seating.

In addition, your name will be displayed as a member of the Friends of the Centre on the Renaissance Centre website and on the screen prior to Main Stage performances. You will also be invited to join us for a VIP experience prior to an upcoming show.

You can help us to not only “Imagine the Possibilities” but achieve our full potential by making your tax-deductible donation today.

Donating is easy! To donate online, click the Donate button below. To donate via check, mail your check to Wake Forest Renaissance Centre, Town of Wake Forest, 301 S. Brooks Street, Wake Forest, NC 27587.

Thank you for your consideration! We look forward to seeing you soon!
