We need your help.
As a non-profit organization, a significant portion of our operating costs are covered by grants and direct donations from our community. In addition, the necessary steps we have taken to help ensure optimal public health during the coronavirus pandemic have had, and will continue to have, direct financial consequences for all theaters and teaching artists, including ours. ETC tries to operate with fiscal prudence, but with reduced class sizes and the cost of increased cleaning, ETC continues to depend on the support of our generous community. For those willing and able to make a gift at this time, know that your support will help us get through this challenging time.
What your gift will do:
- Fund inclusion services to help make our classes accessible to everyone
- Enable us to provide financial aid to help students in need
- Sustain our core operations
- Support the fearless creation of art
We are committed to our community.
Our priority remains to fulfill our mission to create space for collaboration, empowerment and the joyful celebration of community using movement and ensemble theater traditions, imaginative play, and aerial arts to help people of all abilities discover their potential, encourage perseverance and embrace their humanity.
We appreciate you being a part of the ETC family.
