You can make the transformative experience of live performance affordable and accessible to all.
Since 1968, TDF has been dedicated to building audiences for the performing arts. Thanks to our generous donors, we are able to serve students, teachers and veterans; audiences who need audio description and open captioning; families impacted by autism spectrum disorder and other intellectual and developmental disabilities; and theatre lovers who can’t afford Broadway's expensive ticket prices. We help bring the power of performing arts to all by breaking down barriers for audiences, so we can all heal, grow, and share joy.
If you too believe that attending live theatre is a right, and not a privilege please consider making a donation today. Every donation, large or small makes the difference
I believe in the absolute importance of providing theatre experiences to everyone, in every conceivable demographic. Live theatre can be a transformative event in someone’s life and TDF is a vital, vibrant organization that provides that opportunity.
A. Gewirtz (TDF member)
As a former teacher I realize the importance of exposure to the arts. Some youngsters would never get the opportunity to know about the theater without financial help from those of us who appreciate the significance. TDF helps those students.

I support TDF because I am a proud New Yorker & TDF is a proud supporter of one of the most precious commodities which New York offers to the world - BROADWAY THEATRE & Cultural Events made affordable to everyone!
