Be a Champion!

The performing arts are for everyone

The support of our donors got us through the darkest days of the shutdown and continues to uplift us as we return to pre-pandemic levels of service. We have come so far but we still have a long way to go. Until everyone feels welcome at the theatre, our job isn't done; but unless ticket sales return to prior levels, TDF programs have less revenue to operate. Gifts of $1,000 or more help sustain our life-changing programs.

Join our community of donors devoted to transforming, empowering and enriching lives through the performing arts. Champions receive benefits that enhance their theatregoing experiences while witnessing the impact of their generosity.
