Support the House

Like many nonprofit performing arts venues, your generous philanthropic support maintains over half of KCH’s annual budget. But unlike other venues in the area, Kerrytown Concert House is unique in offering a world-class concert experience in an intimate historic setting, where the audience can experience artistry of the highest caliber, mere steps away from the performers.

There are many ways you can choose to support the House! Browse our menu of giving options offered below or reach out to help us curate a gift that works best for you. However you choose to support “the House,” you will make a meaningful impact for this essential venue and for the world-class artists and audiences we serve!
