children's theatre of elgin / fox valley theatre company

Help us reach our year-end fundraising goal of $15,000 so that we can continue to provide quality theatrical experiences in the Fox Valley community for years to come!

As a thank you for your donation this holiday season, we will be offering CTE apparel:

Donate $50 or set up a $5 recurring monthly donation through Paypal and receive a free tshirt!

Donate $100 or set up a $10 recurring monthly donation through Paypal and receive a free hoodie!


The average cost of a production can be from $38,000 to more than $60,000! 

With 20% of our revenue coming from ticket sales which have been down more than 25% since our 2017-2018 season, we have to rely more on the generosity of our donors to continue providing theatrical experiences for the youth in our community. 


Give as an individual, a family or in the name of your business!

Keep it simple by setting up a monthly donation through Paypal for any amount!

Receive free tickets, as well as online and print visibility to all of our audience members!

CTE is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that relies on the generosity of its community and supporters. Donor gifts make it possible for us to provide thousands of young people and our audiences with outstanding theatrical experiences not otherwise attainable.
