Did you know that donating members are the driving force behind Wolf Trap Foundation? Membership is at the heart of all that we do—maintaining the quality and accessibility of our programming, nurturing emerging artists, and offering a place of joy and learning for our community. When you become a Wolf Trap member, you not only receive all the benefits Wolf Trap has to offer, but you become part of our family. If you love coming to Wolf Trap and are wondering, “why should I become a member?”, here are four reasons why a Wolf Trap membership is for you.

1. Bring high-quality arts and education programs to your community

Wolf Trap membership donations help deliver high-quality, diverse, and innovative programming to our stages. Membership also enables thousands of teachers to use the performing arts to improve education for students through arts-integrated curriculum. Your membership contribution can impact tens of thousands of children, parents, and teachers across our county and make a difference in countless lives. Bonus: Wolf Trap Foundation is a 501©3 non-profit and your gift may be tax-deductible!


2. Get tickets before the general public

Wolf Trap members enjoy robust benefits, and one of the most popular is presale ticket access.  Members at the Friend-level and above can buy tickets before the general public, guaranteeing access to the tickets they want to see their favorite artists. Members at the Curtain Raiser-level and above receive significant discounts on ticket fees during presales. And ALL members are eligible for ticket exchanges—a benefit exclusively for members!

4. Connect to other arts lovers

Wolf Trap members have many opportunities to meet and connect with each other throughout the year at performances, member dinners, and special events. Many members also choose to get more involved by volunteering for Wolf Trap Foundation. Volunteering is a benefit of membership, and in addition to giving back to your community, volunteers enjoy several perks including special events and free tickets. Our volunteers serve in a variety of roles and play a vital part at Wolf Trap. We would be honored to have you work with us this year!
