Our Charity Partners

For every ounce of support we receive from the community, we believe in giving back. That’s why a portion of the proceeds from each show we produce every season is given back to one of our charity partners. The Arts aren’t just about actors and playwrights and directors.

They’re about the people whose lived are enriched by The Arts.

How We Do This

During the run of every show, we host one Benefit Performance where 100% of the proceeds of the evening go to our designated charity partner. The show tickets generally include a drink and an appetizer for our audience members, giving everyone an extra thank you for helping the community through this exclusive performance each run.

Becoming a Charity Partner

If your organization is interested in becoming one of Step Up Productions’ Charity Partners, we’d love to hear from you. We typically chose our charity partners from those organizations that directly benefit residents and populations in the Greater Chicago Area.

Please drop us a line below and we’ll be in touch. Be sure to give us information about your organization, your service geography and demographic, and a link to your organization’s website.
