our $5 + 1 Community Campaign
WEAVE believes in the power of the performing arts
to dispel the narrative of racial, ethnic, and gender hierarchy
that we have all inherited.
To repair the legacy of systemic, institutional, and individual harm
that has been endured for generations, we center the voices of
Women, Indigenous, Immigrant, Queer, Black, and Brown artists
on our stages, and we invite audiences to acknowledge
and celebrate the myriad roots of American culture.
Our $5+1 Goal
In order to sustain our mission we must exponentially expand our reach.
In our first year, we want to gather a strong foundation of 500 donors
to support social and cultural diversity through the arts.
However, the magnitude of our mission can only truly be matched by an equally ambitious goal. Our intention is to ultimately reach ALL 10,000 Bainbridge households, thus fulfilling our vision of 100% community participation.
In recent times, we have come face to face with divisiveness in our midst and we have experienced the need for community during crisis. We understand the importance of creating spaces that are accessible and welcoming to all.
that an artist-centered, equity-based, all-ages, community venue is both the common ground we seek and the perfect space to gather, listen, and celebrate.
WEAVE is crucial...
to building a compassionate and equitable society that understands the power of joy as a path to healing, theater as a path to reflection, and music as medicine.
WEAVE has earned...
a stellar reputation for attracting phenomenal talent and our sold-out shows testify to our relevance in this community.
Though we are committed to the intimacy of the WEAVE experience, selling out our small venue does not cover our costs and does not guarantee our future.
Our Model Must Be Different
We are unwilling to engage in traditional methods of fundraising that perpetuate inequity. Season tickets, membership tiers, VIP status, and donation perks are all designed to reward only those with the most capital.
With WEAVE’s cutting edge $5+1 Campaign everyone can be a donor, everyone can make an impact, and everyone can enjoy the benefits.
with Your monthly $5 donation,
advance economic and social justice in your own community
honor artists for their gifts with a passionate audience, good sound, & fair pay

To reach our goal of 500 donors in this first year,
we thought of one final win-win that will really help spread the word.

Your all ages policy is wonderful! - Kate G.
That was one of the best times I've had on this island in the 9 years that I've lived here!! I'm so extremely happy to find this jewel in our community.
