Impact

Student Oratory Festival

Our student oratory festival gives students the opportunity to perform Lincoln’s words on our historic stage. We have reached students in 17 states across the U.S.

Your support helps preserve Lincoln's legacy and helps us inspire the next generation of leaders.

When you support Ford’s Theatre, you become part of the family, while making an impact on your community and your nation.

Donations and membership further our mission of celebrating Lincoln’s legacy and exploring the American experience. Your support helps fund educational programs like the Oratory Festivals, giving children a place on our national stage. Your funding brings the American experience to life through our performances. And your generosity inspires visitors by exploring the importance of President Lincoln and his legacy through our exhibits.

Ford’s Theatre Society sponsored visits for almost
5,000 underserved students in the community.
