Here are some examples of what contributions at different levels help to support.  Please donate at whatever level you feel most comfortable, even if the amount is not listed here - thank you! 

$60 makes it possible for one public high school student to participate in the Stage Doors Program for a semester. Stage Doors students attend a Broadway or Off Broadway show and participate in classroom workshops designed to enhance their experience.

$100 makes it possible for a TDF teaching artist to conduct one pre- or post-performance workshop in the classroom.

$300 makes it possible for one public high school student to participate in the Residency Arts Project (RAP) for a school year. RAP students are taught how to write their own one-act plays and attend two Broadway or Off Broadway plays that serve as an inspiration for their playwriting.        

$800 makes it possible for an audio describer to provide audio description for one Broadway performance for our patrons who are blind or have vision loss.    

$1,000 makes it possible for a sign language interpreter to provide interpreting for one Broadway performance for our patrons who are deaf or hard of hearing.

$1,500 enables one public high school student to participate in Open Doors- the theatre arts mentoring program inspired by playwright Wendy Wasserstein-for a full school year.  Students attend six matinee performances, followed by post-performance discussions facilitated by prominent theatre professionals.

$1,800 covers the full cost of audio describing one Broadway performance, including fees for the audio describer and technician, earbuds and receivers for our patrons and audio description equipment. 

$5,000 makes it possible for three classes in one public high school to participate in Stage Doors for a semester.
