NTPA logo

Thank you for your generous support of the North Texas Performing Arts and our family of theatres. Your ongoing support enables us to continue offering quality arts education to children, teens, and families across North Texas. On behalf of everyone at NTPA, we thank you for all you do to make NTPA a home for our children.

Donate to NTPA Scholarships and General Operations

The North Texas Performing Arts will produce over 200 major productions providing over 11,000 youth to experience the performing arts and the power of having their voice heard onstage.   This can only be done with the support of donors, supporters and patrons that believe in the power of the performing arts and investing in tomorrow’s leaders.

In 2022, the NTPA Governing Board of Directors reaffirmed NTPA policy that Donor contributions to specific theatre functions will be credited to theatre targeted funds or operating accounts as directed by the donor. In order to secure a safe future and to provide funding for future scholarship endowments and other strategic investments, NTPA prudently reserves twenty percent of all directed contributions to an NTPA reserve account.

In its over thirty years as a non-profit institution, NTPA has a proven track record of prudent conservative financial management, a careful steward of financial support received, and non-program expense management considered “best in class”.  NTPA undergoes an annual third-party financial audit, and has been found in compliance with FASB accounting standards. For the past six years, NTPA has received the highest of scores in the City of Plano Arts Commission’s annual review of its operations and programs.

NTPA takes the position that a reasonable portion of a directed fund donation may be a applied to customary overhead and that excess receipts for individual campaigns may be applied to future efforts.
