The Women's Voices Fund enables our Theatre Company to commission, workshop and produce new plays by women and is now a national model for female-centric theatre fundraising, as well as one of the largest at more than $1 million.

2016 marks the 11th anniversary of the endowment fund, which has enabled us to commission 15 female playwrights and hire 17 female directors at the Theatre Company. Furthermore, the Fund also has contributed to 10 world premiere plays by women.

Contributors to the fund are invited to meet and converse with the women who benefit from the fund as well as the Theatre Company artistic staff at events throughout the season, including the Colorado New Play Summit every year.

Special thanks to our current donors!
