INDIVIDUAL & FAMILY GIVING – Your Support Plays a Big Part!
Each year when we select scripts to produce on stage … design education programs for classrooms … and partner with community organizations, we do it with one goal in mind: to enrich the lives of the young people we serve.
Our programming is sustained, in part, through earned revenue from ticket sales and education registration. Donors play a significant role as well, allowing us to preserve the level of excellence you’ve come to expect from Bay Area ETC. These contributions also help us offer a generous scholarship program and provide subsidized tickets for underprivileged groups. You can chose how you want your donation to be used.
Thank you for all the ways you support the Theater. For buying tickets. For engaging in our education programs. For telling friends about us.
If you’ve made a gift, please know how much we value your support. And if you’ve considered making a gift, we hope you’ll join us. Your gift not only provides essential financial resources for our programming, it also provides valuable benefits for you and your family to enjoy.
