a day of global giving

On #GivingTuesday, (11/27)/18) help us reach our goal of $5,000!

#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in countries around the world. Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.

When we launched Troy Foundry Theatre in October of 2017, we could never have imagined where we would be today. 

In just a short 13 months, we have performed in 13 unique venues in and around Troy. We have produced three main stage productions and hosted 12 new plays and playwrights during our Dark Day Mondays Reading Series.  Out of the 20 pieces of programming  presented in the last 13 months, 17 of those events have been FREE. On November 1st, TFT received a certificate of honor from the City of Troy celebrating our work to bolster the arts.  And that’s just the start.  Our 18.19 season continues with two more main stage productions, and more Free Dark Day Readings and Pop-Up events. We are startled and humbled by the amount of support and recognition our company has received over the last year. We are ready to keep going. To take bigger steps. And to become an essential and permanent part of the city of Troy.  

When you make a tax-deductible donation on #GivingTuesday you can help TFT in the following ways…

  • Keep our admission costs low or free so ALL community members feel welcome to attend our events

  • Bolster new playwrights through their process of developing new work through our Dark Day Mondays Free Reading Series

  • Help us obtain the performance rights to perform new plays and re-envisioned standards; to keep our programming fresh, relevant, and impactful

  • Sustain Troy Foundry Theatre into our third season of programming (19.20) and impact Troy’s creative economy

We believe the arts are an integral part of how we form communities; how we perceive and communicate with the world around us, and with each other.  Theatre brings us together in times of strife and in times of joy. It allows us a space to express, reflect and effect change. We have so enjoyed spending the last year getting to know you all and can’t wait for what’s to come.

Corporate Sponsorships

You can experience the impact of your donation every time the lights come up on another Troy Foundry Theatre project.

Playwrights, actors, directors, designers, and technicians all do their part to bring a play to life. In addition to all of those talented and creative artists, we wouldn't make it to Opening Night without the vision and commitment of so many other people. Our audience can get us part of the way there, but it only through the support of foundations, corporations, government agencies, and individuals like you, can all the pieces come together. 

Your sponsorship is not only important to the viability of live theatre, but it is also tax deductible. And, to show our appreciation, we also offer these Sponsor Benefits that help you connect directly to our audience, but get closer to the Troy Foundry Theatre and the amazing artists involved. Get your sponsorship today or contact us, and find out other ways in which you can help.
