Make a Gift


In order to ensure our patron's health and safety at Hett performances, all tickets will be sold 45 days prior to all events for Friends of the Hett and 30 days prior for the general public.


What we do is not possible without you!

If, over the past fourteen seasons, you’ve found yourself inspired, transported, or entertained by some of the incredible artists presented on the Hett’s stage, then I hope that you will take a moment to support our mission. Help us to keep McKendree Presents thriving for years to come!

Support from individual Friends of the Hett members make our season possible (and make each season better than the previous one)!

When you donate to the Friends of the Hett or purchase a ticket to an event, you demonstrate your belief in the value of the performing arts. You know that the hope, joy, and inspiration that come from great art are not a luxury. Art is essential. I hope you will consider making a gift to the Hett today.

To make a gift please call the box office at 618-537-6863, send your check via US Mail made payable to McKendree University (annotate the Hett in the memo line), or click the "Make a Gift" button on the right side of this page.
