How to help

The Park Theater originally came into being out of a desire for arts, culture, entertainment — and community — in downtown Lafayette. That was 1941, this is 2021 and the goal for a vibrant Downtown has not changed. The Park Theater can light up Lafayette again but to bring it back to life, we need COMMUNITY. We need YOU!

This is Our ONCE AND
FOREVER Opportunity

In 1941, the Park Theater came into being out of a desire for arts, culture, entertainment — and community — in downtown Lafayette.

This is 2021 and the goals have not changed. This is a ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY to save this cultural icon. The Park Theater can light up Lafayette again but to bring it back to life, we need community. We need YOU!

Together, we can create a downtown space designed to entertain and engage us all. Together, let’s light up the Park ... and light up Lafayette!

Please help us raise $8 million to finalize the purchase and fund the Park Theater remodel.

Cash Donations

Make your secure one-time or recurring donation via our secure donation form.

Vehicle Donations

Donate your unwanted vehicle to this great cause. They handle all the necessary arrangements, and the Park Theater benefits by your generosity.

Corporate Matching Gift Programs

To encourage philanthropy and support their communities, many companies “match” charitable contributions made by employees. If your employer offers this program, ask your HR department for a matching gift form to send to The Park Theater Trust along with your donation.
