Karamu Rising Campaign

Support Our Capital Campaign

We are now in our third phase of renovations, and through widespread community support, we've already raised 80 percent of our $10.5 million capital campaign of $10.5 million. This final phase of development is dependent on the support of individual, foundation, and corporate donors to reach our final $2.0 million in our capital campaign.

Since 2017, we've completely renovated the historic Jelliffe Theatre, art gallery, gift shop, theatre lounge, and box office and main lobby. This third phase of capital improvements will include the construction of a full-service bistro and patio, and outdoor arena theatre, as well as major renovations to the Arena Theatre, backstage and green rooms, and exterior facade. 

Name a Paver

There are a limited number of etched pavers that still remain. Honor or memorialize a loved one, your family, or a local organization. Pavers start at just $150, and can be purchased here.

Other Naming Opportunities

There are many other naming opportunities available to support the final phase of our capital campaign. Please contact our Development Office for more information.
