Dear Friends,

Wolf Trap, the nation’s only National Park for the Performing Arts, welcomes people of all ages to a place where nature, architecture, the arts, and community spirit combine most uniquely. Nearly 500,000 people are impacted by Wolf Trap each year through an array of performing arts offerings across all genres, and through our early childhood education and opera training programs.

As a community, we are stewards of this national treasure, and we must elevate and keep the organization thriving, relevant, and beloved for future generations. The Campaign for Wolf Trap: Our Next Chapter is Wolf Trap Foundation's largest fundraising ambition ever—with a goal to strengthen and revitalize the Wolf Trap experience, build our endowment, and amplify our influence and impact locally and nationally.

This campaign will yield the largest investment since our founding and fulfill a vision to bring new vitality to our community treasure—a national force in the arts. To realize this vision requires philanthropic support for two critical priorities:

  1. Reimagining the Wolf Trap Park Experience through Capital Investment
  2. Growing the Wolf Trap Foundation Endowment

The time has never been more necessary to think boldly about the next chapter for this beloved institution, and we hope you will join us in this once-in-a-generation initiative.

Thank you for your consideration and friendship,
