Big Plea!

While grants from the Nancy Quinn Fund and the Puffin Foundation will help defray the cost of our upcoming show, we depend on the support of generous people like you. Without your support, our work is just an idea. Your contribution makes it a reality. Any amount you can donate will be put directly to work for this production.

  • $50 covers the cost of rehearsal space for one day.

  • $100 helps pay for postcards and marketing.

  • $500 pays an actor's stipend.

  • $1,000 will go towards covering the performance space for a week.

No donation is too small (or too big). We are $4,000 away from meeting our fundraising target.
