Snapshot Survey Reports
Snapshot Surveys are short surveys focusing on various topics such as fiscal health, education, governing boards, employee benefits and online ticket sales and contributions. This format allows TCG to gather and to disseminate information quickly and to identify new areas for investigation.
For questions about the following surveys, contact Ilana B. Rose, associate director of research & collective action.
The Taking Your Fiscal Pulse reports convey timely information on the extent to which theatres are meeting their budgetary goals for their fiscal year, share theatres' projections for the next fiscal year and reflect their current concerns.
Archived on this page are TCG's annual Special Reports on Education (formerly known as the Education Centerpiece). Each publication includes a narrative providing in-depth analysis, case studies or resources focused on education as well as tabulations from the annual Education Survey. The survey collects information about education and outreach programs at TCG Member Theatres. Theatres are asked to identify their education and audience development programs, staffing information, audience demographics, assessment and evaluation tools as well as education expenses and income pulled from the TCG Fiscal Survey.
TCG periodically conducts a Governing Boards Survey that captures not-for-profit board of directors' composition—including age, gender, and race/ethnicity—as well as board structures; policies and activities; development and engagement practices; committees; board/staff relations; and priorities.
