Subsidized artist rental fees cover just 68% of the cost of keeping Neighborhood House open to the public.


  • For over a decade, Christ Church Neighborhood House has been a vital resource for Philadelphia artists and audiences. In 2017, we served over five dozen individual artists and ensembles, hosting 118 public events for a total audience of 9,020. 
  • Neighborhood House, a self-sustaining program of Christ Church Preservation Trust, has a small staff, a small budget, and tremendous impact, a ripple effect that benefits hundreds of artists and their audiences. All gifts of all sizes help us preserve and increase this effect:
  • $800 subsidizes a one-week theater rental
  • $200 subsidizes a theater performances or a local artist's concert of new music on the Christ Church organ
  • $100 provides overhead for a weekend of rehearsals in the Great Hall
  • $50 subsidizes an afternoon workshop or audition
  • $5 replaces a broken lamp in a theater light
