The HOPE Fund is a special relief initiative to help First Stage endure the financial effects related to COVID-19 during our 2020-2021 season.

First Stage is only as strong as our talented team of artistic, administrative and teaching staffs. Donations to this fund will help support these individuals who provide HOPE for thousands of young people and families and make it possible for us to continue to transform lives through theater.

All charitable gifts made to the HOPE Fund will be matched 1-to-1, up to $100,000 by the Molitor Foundation.
