June 3, 2021 Is TDF Giving Day

Support TDF today to bring audiences back tomorrow


Facebook Twitter

Thursday, June 3 is TDF Giving Day! This annual celebration raises crucial funds to support our programs that make theatre and dance affordable, accessible and inclusive for all. We’re thrilled to announce that all donations up to $50,000 will be matched by the Hearst Foundations. That means every gift, large or small, will have twice the impact. We’ll be honest, this goal is a stretch. And we realize many worthy organizations have asked you to donate over the past 15 months. But we know that you care about TDF and the joy we bring to you and millions of others through the power of the performing arts. Your support is critical as we rebuild our infrastructure after more than a year of operating at reduced capacity.

Since 1968, TDF has been dedicated to building audiences for the performing arts. Even the pandemic couldn't stop us: While theatres were closed, we provided virtual arts workshops to 6,000 students and teachers; offered more than a dozen interactive online events to the 10,000 families in our Autism Friendly Performances community; engaged hundreds of veterans and homebound seniors with accessible digital programming and so much more.

As we prepare to reinstate our in-person programs in schools and theatres across New York City, we are calling on you to help TDF come back stronger than ever.

We hope you'll join us for TDF Giving Day to support the work we're doing to repair our industry by bringing back audiences for theatre and dance!
