A Heartfelt Thank You to our Champions

Washington Performing Arts is particularly grateful to the strong community of more than 900 donors (listed below) who generously supported our Champion Fund between March and August 2020, making gifts that propelled us toward the future during an incredibly critical and challenging time in the early days and months of the pandemic.

Your new, reallocated, or additional gift, your sustained support for our Virtual Gala, your Friends renewal, or your ticket refund donation—every dollar made a difference in helping us continue to realize our mission and achieve our goals as we worked to close our fiscal year on August 31. All in all, these gifts that we counted toward the Champion Fund raised more than $2.5 million for Washington Performing Arts.

Looking forward, we are determined to continue elevating great art and arts education as well as supporting the artists in our community, now in new dynamic ways on our digital platform. Thank you for partnering with us to shape a sustainable future and continue to provide access and opportunities for everybody in our community—and beyond—to experience, participate in, and express themselves through the performing arts.


Washington Performing Arts seeks general and programmatic support across our full spectrum of activities that make an impact in our community. Visit our Support page to see all the different ways that you can help.


Champion Profile:
Lenka Kneschke

Lenka Kneschke

“I have enjoyed attending WPA performances since I moved to the Washington, D.C. area five years ago. In addition to great performances, I appreciate WPA’s long-standing commitment to engaging diverse communities in the arts. What really impressed me recently was WPA’s proactive response to the pandemic. WPA showed creative leadership in being one of the first in the industry to introduce an array of streaming home experiences. I am pleased to support an organization that jumps head-first into opportunity and is committed to continuing to bring communities together through the arts during these difficult times.”

Lenka Kneschke
Champion Fund ticket donor and
Washington Performing Arts first-time Friend (joined July 2020)



The list of supporters below includes individuals, corporations, foundations, and government agencies that made new, renewed, sustained, or additional gifts in support of Washington Performing Arts between March and August 2020. Additional gifts made by these donors earlier in the fiscal year—outside of the Champion Fund—are not represented below.


Board of Directors

 Washington Performing Arts is grateful for the extraordinary leadership and partnership of our entire Board of Directors during this critical period. Together with their families, our Board of Directors led the Champion Fund charge with invaluable support, both financial and intangible, in empowering Washington Performing Arts to survive and thrive.
