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.

2018 marks the 13th anniversary of the endowment fund, which has enabled us to produce 33 plays by women, commission 20 female playwrights and hire 31 female directors at the Theatre Company. Furthermore, the Fund also has contributed to 13 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 and meet and greets with the beneficiaries every year.

Special thanks to our current donors!
