about TDF
support TDF

Each year, thousands of students throughout NYC enjoy their first theatre experience through TDF’s Education & Training Services.

TDF brings theatre to people and people to the theatre. You can join this exciting mission today! Whether you're an individual theatre lover or a corporation looking for an effective way to support the arts, giving to TDF is money well spent.
As the largest not-for-profit service organization for the performing arts in the nation, TDF supports its ambitious education and access programs partly with revenues from its TKTS Discount Booths. The rest comes from donors like you. Your contribution can:

  • Change the life of a public school student
  • Make the dream of attending theatre a reality for someone with a physical disability
  • Subsidize a new play that could be the next Pulitzer Prize winner
  • Make theatregoing affordable for more than a million people every year

Find out how you can play your part by clicking on one of the links at the right.

For additional information, contact Joy Cooper, Director of Development, or call (212) 912-9770 ext. 340. To make a donation by mail, checks may be sent to: Development Department, Theatre Development Fund, 520 8th Avenue, Suite 801, New York, NY 10018
