Our Donors

Join us in thanking our generous 2017-2018 Donors! Since ticket sales cover only a little more than half of our annual budget, it is  your donations that make the difference. You are indispensable to the continuing success of SLO REP.

Donations of $100 or more will be listed in our playbill and here on our website. Please contact Communications & Development Director Patty Thayer for more information.
