Ways to Give

By making a tax deductible donation to The Dixie, you will help us be an advocate for excellence in support of the arts in Tennessee and most importantly positively impacting a life. Remember that every donation makes a difference! Ticket sales only cover a small percentage of our expenses so without the support of our patrons, donors and volunteers we would not be able to offer programs and events for children and adults, including several that are free of charge. That's why we need your help!

The menu of artistic and art education opportunities offered by The Dixie Carter Performing Arts and Academic Enrichment Center is filled with a variety of cultural activities and events. Approximately 4,000 children and adult students have participated in semester classes, after-school programs or summer camp classes in The Dixie Youth Theatre, The Dixie Children’s Chorus, Martin Dance Studio, Mudslingers Pottery, Kindermusik, photography, strings classes, painting, voice lessons, sculpture, drawing, mask making and creative writing. We also provided a world-class performance stage for a multitude of Free Recitals for our local Middle and High School bands, our classes and the after-school programs.
