To celebrate TCG’s 50th Anniversary, we recorded theatre makers sharing the impact TCG makes in their lives. Their testimonials in the video above remind us how profoundly grateful we are to serve such a passionate and diverse field of theatre people. Watch the video and make a gift to help us support theatre-makers for the next 50 years.
Look what we have accomplished together in our first 50 years: what began in 1961 with a handful of trailblazing member companies has grown into a national organization serving more than 500 member theatres and 12,000 affiliate organizations and individuals across the country. The support of individuals like you was crucial to making this possible, so give today and help us continue to strengthen, nurture and promote the not-for-profit American theatre.
The testimonials in the video represent a small fraction of the thousands of theatre makers your gift today will help support through programs and services like:
- Networking and Knowledge Building – From events like the Fall Forum on Governance to studies like Theatre Facts, TCG provides a host of opportunities for training, communication, research, and networking. We’re proud to say that we saw extraordinary attendance in June 2016 at our National Conference in Washington, DC with more than 1,100 participants!
- Grantmaking – More than $2 million is granted to the field each year to theatres and individuals across the nation. With funding opportunities ranging from professional development for actors, theatre administrators, directors, and more to supporting the expansion of technologies to cultivate diverse audiences, TCG grants help to build and connect a new generation of professionals and theatregoers.
- Publishing – TCG is the largest trade publisher of dramatic literature in North America and produces American Theatre magazine, the leading industry publication for not-for-profit professional theatre. We have a history of nurturing the careers of our playwrights, who boast awards including numerous Pulitzer Prizes, Tony Awards, Drama Desk awards, and even one Nobel Prize for Literature.
- Field-Wide Leadership – We initiate programs that advance the entire field of theatre, including advocacy on a national level and reaching beyond our borders to help build a global community of theatre makers.
Help us continue this work for the next 50 years with a gift that is significant to you—whether that is $10, $100 or $1,000. You’ve seen some of what TCG has accomplished in our first five decades, now help us create a bold, thriving vision for the next 50 years and beyond. On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff at TCG, thank you for your support.
P.S. Don’t forget—your gift is fully tax deductible. Act now to begin nurturing the artists and leaders of tomorrow!
