New York City Children’s Theater gratefully accepts leadership support for these core mission areas:

– NEW WORK –

The Estate of Iris Ruina New Works Fund helps us to start projects by identifying and commissioning new writers, while the Goode Family Commissioning Fund supports the further development of new work for our main stage. These funds ensure we are creating powerful productions for young audiences that spark imagination, teach empathy and foster creativity.

– EDUCATION –

The Tony and Anna Kayafas Special Education Fund, created by 2014 Gala Honorees Stan and Helen Kayafas, supports special needs arts education in District 75 schools in New York City. Our arts-in-education programs are particularly effective for students with special needs and use the power of theater to help increase communication skills and support classroom engagement.

– ACCESS –

Our Send a Kid to Theater campaign provides free tickets to thousands of New York City public school students, often giving them their first live theater experience. With your help we can continue offering free tickets to students for a live theater performance that positively impacts their cognitive, emotional and social development, and furthers a lifelong appreciation of the arts.

Thank you to our individual donors for your generosity and support!
