These programs are Create New York, Community Partners, Broadway Passport Series, and Community Connections.
CREATE NEW YORK: BUILDING COMMUNITIES THROUGH THE ARTS is a multi-year partnership program between TDF and community centers that engages up to three separate groups of adults from the centers, each in a different New York City borough, and uses theatre and live performance as ways to promote change in oneself, one’s neighborhood, and, ultimately, one’s city. We are not currently accepting new Community Center partners, but more information can be found about the program to date here.
The COMMUNITY PARTNERS program works with a wide range of organizations in the Tristate area, offering a deeply discounted annual membership fee for TDF membership and a resource guide to the arts in every NYC neighborhood. These are just some of benefits of this program. Our Partners share our values and seek to increase and uphold the cultural life and vitality of New York and all New Yorkers. We also provide three-month subscriptions to Broadway HD at no cost to Community Partners to share with their members.

The BROADWAY PASSPORT SERIES program began in 2021 thanks to a partnership between the New York State Assembly, Broadway producers and TDF. It is designed for community and service organizations across the State that serve lower income residents. Passport organization constituents can join this program for free and receive $20 and $40 tickets to Broadway shows. All organizations that qualify must be approved by the State.
COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS provides monthly virtual viewings of the performing arts to older adults in community centers and residence homes. Curated musicals, plays, concerts and dance performances are shared online on Zoom with post-viewing conversations for the participants. The performances and discussions are in English, Spanish, Mandarin and Cantonese. Participating organizations are New York Foundation for Senior Citizens, Acacia Network and Union Settlement. If you are a member of one of these organizations, please contact them to participate in the monthly viewings over Zoom.
We seek Community Partners that value all cultures and want to facilitate or increase their organizations’ and/or constituents’ experience of the performing arts.
From social service agencies to educational leadership programs to public gardens and cultural centers, our community partners range in mission, but all share an appreciation for the vitality of the arts in our lives as New Yorkers. To that end, we brainstorm with prospective partners to find mutually beneficial ways to work together that are rewarding and enriching.
