Wolf Trap Membership

Members

Many patrons become members because Wolf Trap is a treasured part of their lives. And because they know income from ticket sales only covers a fraction of what Wolf Trap Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, needs to present a diverse season of artists each year. Membership donations play a critical part in keeping Wolf Trap a vital community and national resource.

Members also support an array of year-round arts and education programs. Some members are moved by the opportunity to benefit children’s lives through the Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts. Others want to support emerging artists and future leaders selected for a Wolf Trap Opera residency or a Wolf Trap Foundation internship.

The generosity of our members is what will keep Wolf Trap and our community strong and ready to reopen when it is safe to do so. We are so grateful for their support of Wolf Trap Foundation’s year-round arts and education programs, especially during this challenging time. Current 2020 memberships expire on December 31 and we look forward to providing meaningful content and engagement opportunities in the coming months. We are also pleased to offer memberships for 2021 beginning August 1, 2020, which will be active through December 31, 2021.

If you would like to support Wolf Trap with a fully tax-deductible gift during this time when our stages are temporarily dark, the Music Moves Us Fund supports our groundbreaking education and community initiatives, promote next-generation artists, and strengthen operations to ensure a future of music for all.
