Since March 16, 2020, Des Moines Performing Arts has rescheduled, postponed, and canceled hundreds of performances. Unfortunately, these losses continue to mount and threaten the future of many of our programs. Because of this loss, DMPA is relying exclusively on the generosity of our community to protect the performing arts for whenever it is safe to welcome audiences again. Your gift today joins the efforts of thousands of neighbors in protecting the organization, venues, and programs that you have come to love. Please consider making your most generous gift today to preserve the arts for tomorrow.

Your gift to DMPA goes directly to:
  • Offset costs for canceled shows
  • Maintain our facilities until we can reopen to the public
  • Underwrite the months of advance work and capital investments required prior to reopening
  • Support vibrant programs for our community until we can reopen: Applause Series, Family Series, Dance Series, National Geographic Live, Iowa High School Musical Theater Awards, etc.
