Our Donors

Join us in thanking our generous 2018-2019 Donors! Since ticket sales cover only a little more than half of our annual budget, your donations make the difference. You are indispensable to the continuing success of SLO REP.

Donations of $100 or more are listed here and in our playbill. Questions about your listing? Please contact Communications & Development Director Patty Thayer.
