How to Donate to The Kentucky Theatre Organ Restoration Project

Our volunteers are actively working to restore and reinstall the magnificent theater organ at The Kentucky Theatre, but we need your help! Even working with volunteers, the cost is $260,000. That is $52,000 per year over the next 5 years. There are three ways to donate. Please click on the links below.
