Help Us Build A Better Future For Our Children

Every time we enter a classroom, a community center, or a theater, we have the opportunity to teach children empathy, celebrate inclusive, diverse communities, and model strong values.

With your help, we can nurture more young people to be empathetic, creative, and independent thinkers who make a positive impact on their world.

Here are some of the ways you can direct your support:

  • SUCCEED
  • $2,500
  • Our signature education program Literature at Play uses theater and songwriting to reinforce students’ language, literacy and writing skills. $2,500 brings this important program into NYC public schools, giving 250 students the opportunity to succeed in the classroom.
  • TRANSFORM
  • $1,000
  • Our newest touring show FIVE was developed for children with special needs. $1,000 allows this show to travel into local schools, reaching 150 children with a transformative theater experience.
  • ENGAGE
  • $500
  • NYCCT is committed to providing greater access to the arts to children and families in the tri-state area. $500 will provide 20 students with a ticket to our next production, encouraging a life-long engagement with theater.
  • INSPIRE
  • $250
  • At NYCCT, we believe our education programs are only as good as the quality of our teachers. $250 supports a teacher training session, ensuring our artists are well prepared for the classroom, where they inspire young learners to reach his or her full potential.
