Foundation Support

As we enter our seventh year, Theatre East seeks to expand operations in a way that will begin to support the staff that currently oversees the day-to-day operations with no compensation. Furthermore, we strongly desire to encourage the growth of education and outreach programming components. We welcome invitations to submit a letter of intent or proposal for General Operating Support or program specific support. Please contact Vanessa Altshuler, Manager of Individual Giving, at vanessa@theatreeast.org with any questions.

Corporate Support

Corporate sponsorship is not just vital to Theatre East programming and operations, it is a great way for your company to get involved with the arts community while expanding your corporate visibility. From space on our website to event signage to Playbill ads to acknowledgment during curtain speeches and press releases, we are happy to explore ways to ensure that your support of Theatre East aligns with your corporate initiatives.

Our Neighborhood Reading Series program is one of the many ways corporate sponsorship makes our programming possible. Thanks to O’Lunney’s Times Square Pub, we are able to host the quarterly readings free of charge. The O’Lunney’s exceptional generosity has allowed Theatre East the opportunity to take the theater beyond the footlights.

Thanks to Viacom, Theatre East is in the process of undergoing a website transformation. We look forward to launching the rebranded and invigorated Theatre East this month.
