Support Theatre Washington
Your donation to Theatre Washington helps support our mission to work in partnership with the Washington, DC region’s dynamic professional theatre community of theatre-makers, institutions, and audiences to strengthen the theatrical workforce, cultivate and invigorate theatre-goers, and celebrate extraordinary theatre on Washington, DC-area stages. We have recently:
- We will return with our annual celebration of the Helen Hayes Awards in May 2024, creating time and space for theatre-makers to be in community and celebrate their achievements and each other.
- Have an ongoing process to have a thoughtful restructuring of our volunteer model by evaluating our Board and committees structures. The goals and expected outcomes are to be more accessible, transparent, and reflective of anti-racist and anti-oppressive practices. This has included onboarding new members of the board of directors by using a matrix and doing annual surveys to all of our committees and event staff annually.
- Held monthly meetings for the Taking Care Fund so we can distribute quickly and predictably over $68,000 annually in grants to theatre-makers who need emergency funding as a bridge for an unexpected events including medical or loss of income.
- Supported a united effort with over 35 theatres to provide an engaged and exciting Theatre Week at the start of the Theatre Season and produced a dozen events for discovery and engagement with the vibrant theatre community.
