What do puppets bring to the world?

Happiness, connection, laughter. New ways to understand our world, and imagine the future we’re working to create.

Join the community of more than 100,000 people touched by HOBT each year who agree – life is better with puppets.

What do puppets bring to your world? Your donation builds empathy and strengthens community among our neighbors through Saturday morning matinees, supporting Puppet Artists, and of course, of course, welcoming the beginning of Spring with MayDay!

Become a Heartbeats Donor!

What is Heartbeats?

Heartbeats is a monthly sustaining donation that provides a reliable financial base that allows us to continue our work with the community.

What are the advantages of Heartbeats?

PAPERLESS! If you become a Heartbeats donor, you can choose to no longer receive our paper appeal mailings! You will receive one statement in January with a summary of your giving history for tax purposes (and your annual magnet).

Smaller monthly contributions! Do you normally give $100 a year? Break that down to a manageable $9 a month donation and you have hit your $100 mark (actually its $108, for you math geniuses out there!). This is a great way to make your donations more financially manageable!

Free tickets to Heart of the Beast Shows! Every Heartbeats donor will be entered into a monthly drawing for two free tickets to any Heart of the Beast show. These tickets will not expire, so you can use them anytime, for any show!

THANK YOU to our funders and friends!

Many thanks to the hundreds of individuals who have joined Heartbeats, made monthly sustaining gifts, made Give to the Max donations, and contributed time and resources to support HOBT programming this year. The Board, Staff, Artists and Volunteers sincerely THANK YOU for your continuing generosity.
