PVTC 2022 Fundraising Campaign
This year, we truly experienced the meaning of our summer theme Home is Where the Heart Is in our return to live, in-person theatre.
Like almost every non-profit in the post-COVID world, PVTC still faces financial challenges. Time and again, we hear that what makes PVTC so valuable and special is the people. Unfortunately, many of our artists and staff members work long hours for very little pay. The truth is, we need to bring on more help in order to ensure a vibrant, sustainable theatre that puts our community at the center of our work.
Over the next two years, our goal is to increase the budget by 200% in order to offer cutting-edge programming and productions to the community. While we’ll need a multi-pronged approach to reach this goal, including individual giving, sponsorships, and grants, we’re hoping that you can step up today with a significant gift to allow PVTC’s people to continue to make theatre that impacts lives across the Peninsula.
PROGRAMS THAT TEACH EMPATHY, LEADERSHIP, & PROBLEM SOLVING

Diversification of artistic staff & teachers
Arts outreach in local schools, including in underserved communities
Theatre for Young Audiences at local preschools

The true cost of all these programs should be about $1.5 million annually, but PVTC survives on a scant $500k for all of our staffing, space usage, supplies, and infrastructure.
Help us become a thriving and sustainable home as we continue to recover from the devastating COVID-19 pandemic.
