Support the Field Trip Fund

Many schools depend on our Field Trip Sponsorship Program to offset the costs of their educational field trip to the Center. 

Featured Creatures Nameplates

Celebrate the opening of the Center’s new Worlds of Puppetry Museum with a personalized puppet nameplate – installed on the wall of our Atrium! Each nameplate will be digitally printed with an image of a puppet from the Global Collection or the Jim Henson Collection, along with your inscription or dedication.

Sponsor a Seat and Tribute/Memorial Gifts

Make your mark on the Center and show the world your generosity. For a donation of only $250, an engraved plaque in honor of you or a loved one will be placed on a seat in our Mainstage Theater.

All inquiries regarding gifts to Center for Puppetry Arts are completely confidential. For further information about donating gifts to the Name-A-Seat Fund, please contact the Membership Manager at 404.881.5151 

Support the Center

We think that puppetry is awesome.
Since you’re on our website, chances are you think it’s awesome, too!
Puppetry educates, entertains, and inspires children (and adults!) of all ages.
You can help us inspire imagination, education and community through the global art of puppetry.

Donate Puppets

Thank you for your interest in making a puppet donation to the Center for Puppetry Arts! We accept donations for three purposes: museum exhibition, education, and the annual String Fling Gala auction.

Donate Goods or Services

Running a puppet theater takes a lot of supplies! From the glue and construction paper used in our Create-A-Puppet Workshops, to paint used to bring our scenery to life, to computers and other business equipment, the Center uses a lot of supplies! Generous donors like you can provide essential and meaningful in-kind support by donating goods or services. Remember, in-kind gifts are tax-deductible as allowed by law!

Matching Gift Programs

Many corporations offer employee giving programs where they match donations or the tax deductible component of your Membership. Find out if your company offers a Matching Gift Program by contacting your Human Resources Department. For more information contact Hilary Meredith at 404-881-5151 or
