Arizona Theatre Company (David Ivers, Artistic Director; Billy Russo, Managing Director) has received a commitment for a two-year, $200,000 matching grant from The Stonewall Foundation to spur a campaign of support for ATC’s new artistic vision, the continuation of its storied legacy, and to provide ongoing financial stability for this cornerstone arts organization.
“Arizona Theatre Company’s new leadership has shown us that the new artistic vision and commitment to ambition and fiscal responsibility has inspired and energized its audience,” said Stonewall Foundation President and CEO Rick Small. “Our hope is to engage communities and individuals across Arizona in ensuring a bright, successful future for Arizona Theatre Company to build upon its legacy with confidence, curiosity, and excellence.”
Incorporated in 1977, The Stonewall Foundation has provided annual support to nonprofit organizations in Tucson, donating more than $20 million to 21 organizations, including Arizona Theatre Company.
Fifty percent of the matching grant must be contributed by new donors to ATC, donors who have not made a gift in the past 18 months, or current donors who increase their contribution over last fiscal year. The ATC Board of Trustees has committed to the first fifty percent.
“We are deeply grateful not only for this generous grant, but for the confidence in our exciting artistic vision and the consistent support Arizona Theatre Company has received from The Stonewall Foundation over the years,” said ATC Artistic Director David Ivers.
