Our shows wouldn't be possible without the generous help of some great local companies, organizations, and individuals:
First off, our fabulous individual donors.
The CarMax Foundation - exceedingly generous, multiple awards from this prestigious foundation!
Actor's Equity Foundation. For our work with local AEA talent, we've received 5 grants from this organization. This helps us defray the cost of an AEA actor, without sacrificing the prestige of being a place where top notch AEA and non-union actors can work.
Society for the Arts, Active Singles 50+; a fantastic 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to raising money to benefit the arts in the Phoenix metropolitan area through social activities, fundraising and member contributions. http://www.arizonasingles.org/
** We have received awards from them 4 years in a row. And they come see our shows. They are absolutely amazing. **
THE CITY OF MESA's Creative Economy Fund. They have awarded us grants 5 years in a row, and it's no exaggeration: these grants keep us going. Our most recent grant from them? Over $1400. This isn't cash, but rather a rent reduction when we settle up after each event. Venue costs are high for us, but this grant gives us a fighting chance. Check out their website to see all the great things that city is doing for the arts, all the time: http://www.mesaaz.gov/Home/
AND our amazing team of donors from our 2013 Indiegogo campaign! Only a couple of donors chose to allow us to thank them publicly:
CPR Cell Phone Repair
...the other 22 are a mixture of anonymous donors and those who chose other perks (or, sometimes, no perks at all). So, you may not know all their names, but you will see the results of their donations.
And check out our spot on the lovely new website, PHXStages - finally, an all-in-one listing for your valley theatre needs!
