Donate to The Carnegie

Built in 1904, The Carnegie in Covington is the historic home of one of five remaining Carnegie auditoriums in the United States and has been sharing the arts with the community since The Carnegie was founded in 1977. To preserve this one-of-a-kind building, The Carnegie launched its capital campaign, led by co-chairs Otto M. Budig and Sara Vance Waddell in September 2019. With the successful support of several foundations and donors, more than $2 million of the $3.5 million campaign goal was secured during the initial phase.
