72% of The Strand’s budget comes from ticket sales and events. Right now, in order to protect the community we love so much, we have temporarily closed our doors. Please help us bridge the gap so we can continue to serve this community for many years to come.


Why your support matters

When you donate to The Strand, you’re supporting locally-produced art and education programs that directly impact your community. It is The Strand’s mission to serve the community with cultural and educational programming, to preserve Marietta's historic landmark theatre, and to promote the economic health in the City of Marietta and Cobb County. None of this would be possible without the generous support of people like you!

Did you know?

The Strand hosts over 1,000 events a year! As the hub of entertainment and anchor of downtown Marietta, The Strand is responsible for bringing in more than $4,000,000 into our local economy every year. When you give to The Strand, your donation goes directly towards creating a strong and economically healthy community. 


We make every dollar count.

At The Strand, we believe in being excellent stewards of your donations. Most of our budget comes from ticket sales and events -- an average of 72%! Nationally, arts organizations rely on donors for over 50% of their yearly budget. That means that we work hard to sustain ourselves through the programming we provide to the community.
