“Not-for-Profits Helping Not-for-Profits” Initiative
In the spring of 2016, our Executive Board began a “not-for-profits helping not-for-profits” initiative, where we partner with another local organization on each of our productions to help raise awareness of important issues within the community.
As a not-for-profit ourselves, we understand the challenges of building awareness and securing funding. So, in exchange for marketing assistance, we promote our partner organization’s cause and donate to them partial proceeds from each ticket sold during our production’s 2-week run.
If you would like to suggest an organization for us to partner with, please send us an email at email@example.com.
Since 2016, Stage 43 has given away more than $6,000. We are proud to have partnered with the following organizations:
