Ways to Give
There’s theater, and then there’s Paper Mill Playhouse. Celebrate the difference.
Your generosity makes a world of difference to help Paper Mill achieve excellence onstage and in the community. Every gift matters because ticket sales alone cover only 50% of our operating budget each year. Learn about the many ways to get involved so that Paper Mill can continue to create the best live theater, ensure access to the arts for all, lead groundbreaking educational initiatives, and safeguard the theater’s positive financial impact on businesses across New Jersey.
Education & Community Programs
Paper Mill champions nearly 40,000 students each year with transformative educational programs that build creativity, confidence and cognitive skills through the experience of theater. For example, the Adopt-A-School Project offers middle and high school students in some of New Jersey’s most challenged communities a multi-year theater immersion at no cost to the school.LEARN MORE
