SDW is a community anchor creating innovative programming at the intersection of art, culture, and social change to enrich our communities. As we enter our 7th season in NC, we are celebrating numerous achievements and recognition by nationally recognized performing arts organizations. Our ability to move toward a future bursting with bright possibilities is possible because of the generous commitment of our donors.



A great way for individuals to support us is by a one time donation or by becoming an SDW Sustainer. SDW Sustainers agree to make ongoing, monthly contributions of $5 or more. This amount is automatically drafted from a donor’s bank account each month. It’s easy, convenient and fully tax-deductible through our fiscal sponsor, Fractured Atlas.
