“It showed me that theatre is more than the performers and running a perfect show. It’s about the people you meet and the family it creates.” Big Bad Wolf Cast Member


With your help, we raised $5,900 on #GivingTuesday. We are so grateful to our incredible supporters – we truly could not do what we do without your donations. Thank you so very much!

This #GivingTuesday, Give the Gift of Theatre to a Child

Each year, Children’s Theatre of Elgin brings hundreds of children and their families together to create long-lasting memories, life lessons, and friendships through quality performances. In the 32 years of CTE’s existence, over 100,000 people have been impacted in some way by what we do – and we hope you’re one of those people. 

On December 3rd, CTE will work to reach its goal of $3,500 raised in one single day. (Or, if you want to start early, donate today! Your gift will still count toward the goal!). Here are some ways you can help us reach our goal:

  • Donate on (or before) December 3rd!
  • Make your gift a monthly donation! If you can give $5, $10, $20, or more per month, that really adds up for CTE and doesn’t break your budget! What about donating the amount of years you’ve been involved with CTE?
  • Share your story on social media on #GivingTuesday, and let others know how CTE has impacted your life. You and others like you who have experienced CTE for yourself are truly our greatest advocates.
  • See if your employer has a matching gift program that will make your gift go even further! Own your own business? Place an ad in a CTE program to gain great publicity for a good cause!

Countdown To #GivingTuesday 2019!
