At Tradition we’re dedicated to bringing members from all over the Greater Cincinnati area a life-changing performing arts experience. Each and every year is an adventure, and with your help, we raise money to fund our corps. Now you can join a community of our most committed donors, and protect the future of TRADITION.

Tradition is a non-profit organization under Internal Revenue Code sections 501(c) (3). As such, all contributions are tax-deductible from both individuals and corporations. TRADITION can’t do it without you!

Matching Gifts
