Many of the initiatives that go beyond and behind the stage mean so much to our patrons and company.
Foundation donors are playing an increasingly important role in the training of young artisans through our apprenticeship programs; in ensuring that teachers have the resources and support to prepare their students to be informed and enthusiastic audience members; and in making resources are available through unrestricted giving to ensure that great theatre is presented on our stages.
These initiatives and others, including gifts to our Membership program, are made through both family or private foundations and public foundations.
Private and public foundation support is directed to all aspects of the Festival. Foundation donors join with individuals and corporations in contributing more than $9 million each season and our actors, artisans and patrons all receive the benefits of attending North America’s finest classical theatre.
