The Tony and Anna Kayafas Special Education Fund

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 goal is to bring special needs students exceptional arts-in-education programs that will help increase their communication, engagement, discovery, focus and time on task.

New Works Funds

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.

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