Fiscal Survey

TCG Fiscal Survey 2016 is now open!

Each year since 1974, TCG has conducted a comprehensive survey that captures financial and performance-related information from participating Member Theatres. For many of our Member Theatres, participation in the TCG Fiscal Survey has become a routine annual activity that has proven well worth the time, effort and, admittedly, a small measure of pain! Members have long told us that the work they put into our survey creates a fiscal template for their organizations—one that serves as a foundation for a variety of grant applications and donor correspondence. For many theatres, the Fiscal Survey process further provides an unparalleled opportunity to take stock of, and improve upon, the financial systems that they have in place.

And the rewards do not stop there! The data gathered in the Fiscal Survey serve as the basis for Theatre Facts, TCG's annual in-depth on the state of the U.S. professional non-for-profit theatre field. Available to all Member Theatres, as well as the general public, Theatre Facts provides analysis of the U.S. professional not-for-profit theatre field and is a vital advocacy and policy tool for theatre professionals, trustees, funders, policy makers, researchers, educators, students, and journalists. Member Theatres that complete the Fiscal Survey see even more benefits, gaining exclusive access to online reporting tools and comprehensive survey data.

For those of you who are habitual Fiscal Survey participants, we welcome you to another round! For those of you who have never participated, or who have taken a Fiscal Survey "hiatus," we encourage you to consider participating this year—for your own benefit and for the benefit of the field as a whole. As always, the greater the response by our membership, the more fully we are able to serve you by producing an accurate, representative picture of our industry.
