Help Us Give in 2017

This Holiday season you can help The Collective NY pave the way for a brighter, smarter, more compassionate 2017. Our mission of social relevance and accessibility has never felt more important and we are inviting you to participate.

In 2016, with your help and support we produced our fourth Collective:10 festival and anthology. We produced four C:NXT events, including WE THE PEOPLE, a series inspired by the election, benefiting the Trevor Project, Planned Parenthood and Art Start. We did all of this while proudly providing a weekly artistic home to our 30+ artists so they can nourish, develop and advance their craft -- a process that has consistently generated active stories that dare to be uncomfortable in their truth and relevance. Most importantly, we provided access to quality professional theater to anyone who couldn't afford it. 2016 gave us our largest audience yet and that was all because of YOU.

In 2017 we want to do even more. We need to create more programming, more events, more outreach, more artist development and MORE ACCESSIBILITY. And in order to do that we need you. Consider making an end of the year tax-deductible donation to our NO EMPTY SEATS initiative and help us reach our $30,000 goal.

DOUBLE YOUR DOLLARS: A generous donor will match your donation, up to $10,000! 

Thank you to all who have contributed to us before, and please know there is no donation too small. Please spread the word. Every seat counts.

The Collective NY is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 production company. We rely on the generosity of our supporters to continue to produce top-quality theatre and film, and to continue our development of emerging writers. Every $10 = one seat that we can make available for FREE to someone who cannot afford a ticket to quality professional theatre or does not know that such opportunities exist. We would rather perform for an enthusiastic and engaged audience who have not paid a dime than to have one empty seat. Your tax-deductible contribution, however large or small, will help ensure that we can continue our mission.
