MBT Membership Makes More Happen!

Thank you for exploring what it means to be an MBT Member! We miss seeing you in our audience—we hope you are staying healthy and safe.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Mount Baker Theatre has always depended on Membership support to thrive—and now we need your help to survive. 

MBT has maximized resources and dramatically reduced staff and expenses to manage the serious financial losses incurred during COVID-19, yet we continue to enrich your world by maintaining the historic building, sharing quality online arts experiences, proceeding with Continuing the Legacy capital projects, and planning for a successful reopening that prioritizes your health and safety.

Without the ability to hold events, we are depending heavily on donations to maintain minimal necessary operations during this unplanned intermission. Your annual Membership gift supports these efforts and keeps you in the loop on the latest Theatre updates, while also helping to ensure your beloved arts access and benefits will be there for you in the future. 

To give online, simply click "Donate" below. Then click "Add to Cart" and manually enter the gift amount of your choosing in the Shopping Cart. You can also mail your tax-deductible donation to: MBT Box Office | Attn: Membership | 104 N. Commercial Street | Bellingham, WA 98225
