Support The O’Shaughnessy

The O’Shaughnessy is an artistic affiliate of St. Catherine University. We are supported by the University to maintain our lovely facility, and provide support services, but we receive no funds to present the artistic work you see here.

That’s where you come in. We rely on donations from generous individuals, foundations and other agencies to be able to program local artists like Ananya Dance Theatre, TU Dance, and Katha Dance Theater, and to bring national artists like Rhiannon Giddens, Camille A. Brown & Dancers, and more to our stage.

The Knight Arts Challenge

We are proud to announce that The O’Shaughnessy has been awarded a prestigious Knight Arts Challenge grant for “WEAVE,” a collaboration with The Ordway and Rosy Simas Danse that is taking place throughout 2018 and 2019. When you make a donation, you help us meet this $145,000 matching challenge.


O’Shaughnessy Supporters

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota, through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund, and a grant from Wells Fargo.

The O’Shaughnessy has also received a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board’s Arts Tour program.

The O’Shaughnessy is grateful to the City of St. Paul and the Cultural STAR program for their support.

Additional funders include: 

ArtsMidwest, The Boss Foundation, The Joyce Foundation, and the New England Foundation for the Arts National Dance Project
