Our Supporters

About Face Theatre relies on individual, corporate, foundation and government contributions from our community to support our mission to create exceptional and innovative theatre. Without this support, we would not be able to develop exciting new work in collaboration with the finest emerging and established artists in the nation, nor would we be able to provide exceptional education programming to LGBTQIA youth and their allies.

Below is a complete list of supporters who have donated between May 1st, 2015 and April 30, 2016.
