Giving Tuesday Now

Thank you!Thank you for your generous support of First Stage!

#GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity that takes place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. Together, we united to raise over $16,000 to support our mission of transforming lives through theater.

You can still make a gift to us today. Any amount is greatly appreciated.

First Stage exists to gather people together for shared experiences that inspire, educate, challenge and entertain - and not having the ability to be together in person has been heartbreaking. Due to the current pandemic, we have seen a loss of more than $350,000 in revenue and lost opportunities to impact so many people in our community.

  • 122 performances were cancelled for a projected 32,000 patrons
  • 22,000 students and educators did not see their scheduled performance
  • 700 in-school programs did not occur
  • 21 Academy students had their performance project cancelled

Our mission is critical and WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT NOW MORE THAN EVER to continue to transform lives through theater.

On May 5, 2020, ALL DONATIONS WILL BE MATCHED (up to $5,000) by our Board of Directors.
