Wolf Trap Membership

Members

Many patrons become members because Wolf Trap is a treasured part of their lives. And because they know income from ticket sales only covers half of what Wolf Trap Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, needs to present a diverse season of artists each year. Membership donations play a critical part in keeping Wolf Trap a vital community and national resource.

Members also support an array of year-round arts and education programs. Some members are moved by the opportunity to benefit children’s lives through the Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts. Others want to support emerging artists and future leaders selected for a Wolf Trap Opera residency or a Wolf Trap Foundation internship.

We are pleased to now offer 2022 memberships active through December 31, 2022.

For more information, please contact Wolf Trap Foundation Development at 703.255.1927 or give@wolftrap.org. Please note: Some member benefits have been modified for the 2021 Season.
